    Future Learn Courses and staff have been my saviour over the last year. Following a stroke when I did not have much hope for the future I signed up and the courses ranging from Philosophy, Archaeology, Forensic Science, etc have been AMAZING. The banter with fellow students, the Lecturers have been 1st Class. I hope you get the award as you truly deserve it.

    Just a quick question are you showing your 2 learn live sessions online? Thanks for all your hard work and dedication that thousands of ordinary people like myself rely on you for! And may I say how grateful we are as many of us would not be able to afford the educating that you provide us for free. A big THANKYOU X

    Last year I learned “Environmental Challenge” and wish to complete this course. FutureLearn programs are like one of the Christmas presents for me. Provides me enjoying and sharing time with many learners. It’s like a well prepared learning package with up-to-date educational program, as well as an intellectual classrooms or sometimes a community with witty discussions. Lily offers us learning materials equivalent to that of undergraduate level. I’d love to continue to learning FutureLearn.
    Keep cross fingers for FutureLearn at Bett Awards.

    I have taken quite a few of your literature courses and found them motivating, informative and well-organised. I have been searching for some time for a linguistics course or something related to the history of the English language. Although I have various books on this subject I feel that one of your courses would offer a new approach to it. Has there ever been such a course?

  • Maureen Sears

    Lily, I find so many of your programmes interesting and have taken the creative writing module. I am looking to improve my Russian, but I have not seen any courses which teach either basic or intermediate Russian, is this course a future possibility?

    • Sean (FutureLearn)


      We don’t currently have a Russian course scheduled, but we’re adding courses all the time, so do keep an eye out! It’s definitely a great idea for a course, and one that a lot of learners would be interested in!
