Celebrate your achievements
When you've earned a Certificate of Achievement for every course on a program and completed any assessments, you'll earn a FutureLearn Award - a celebration of your overall achievements.
To receive a FutureLearn Award you must:
- upgrade or pay for all the courses in a program
- qualify for a Certificate of Achievement on them all
- pass any assessment required as part of the program.
We will automatically email you a link to the Award when you qualify.
Note: the FutureLearn Award is online only. There is not a printed or downloadable version.
Demonstrate sustained progress and deep understanding
The FutureLearn Award shows that you have completed 90% of the steps in all courses in the program and achieved a pass rate of at least 70% on any courses that include tests and scored assessments. It can be used to demonstrate a deep understanding of a particular subject area and make a great addition to your CV, CPD portfolio or application for further study.
Viewing and sharing your FutureLearn Award
The Award will be accessible via your FutureLearn profile page and can be shared to your LinkedIn profile or CV as a link. This is what one looks like:
