Investigate a subject in more depth
A program is a series of courses designed to provide you with a deeper and more valuable learning experience than a single course. Taking all courses in a program will allow you to develop and demonstrate your learning progress.
In most cases, you should be able to take courses in any order, but sometimes it will make more sense to take them in sequence.
You can view all of our programs on our programs page.
Have your learning assessed
The program may also include an additional summative element such as a tutor marked assessment where appropriate.
Earn a FutureLearn Award
If you earn a certificate all the courses and take any assessments in a program, you'll earn a FutureLearn Award: a celebration of your achievements on the program. You can read more about this in our article about the FutureLearn Award.
Earn academic credit
Some programs offer university-recognised credit in addition to a FutureLearn award. You can find more information about accreditation in our article about it.
