FutureLearn announces SEEK as new 50/50 shareholders alongside The Open University

We’re delighted to announce a new shareholder today. SEEK, Australia’s top employment marketplace, is joining The Open University as 50/50 shareholders in FutureLearn.

We’re delighted to announce a new shareholder today. SEEK, Australia’s top employment marketplace, is joining The Open University as 50/50 shareholders in FutureLearn. Our existing relationship with The Open University and its vision for the higher education sector has, and will continue to have, a huge impact on and benefit to FutureLearn.

This is big news for us but before we get into the details, we want to say thank you – you, our learners are incredibly important to us and we simply wouldn’t be the company we are today without you, so thank you. And now for those details…

SEEK is Australia’s top employment marketplace. The SEEK Group operates in almost 20 countries, with access to almost 200m jobseekers and almost one million hirers from organisations and recruitment agencies. You can watch a quick video about the group.

For FutureLearn, SEEK adds experience and expertise in the employment sector, a good fit for the education sector as more people look for a return on the time and money they invest in learning.

But there’s no change to our purpose of transforming access to education on a global scale. SEEK are investing in FutureLearn and its business strategy so you’ll keep seeing the FutureLearn you know, it’s not going anywhere.

It really is still business as usual for us. We will still be offering access to courses for free but the investment means we can do more, more quickly.

For example, we’ll continue to invest to ensure our platform remains extremely user-friendly and enjoyable to use on mobile, desktop and tablet. We’ll also remain focused on the courses we bring you so look out for more courses in terms of new subject areas, more degrees, and bite-sized stackable courses for learners keen to develop a particular skill for the workplace.

We’re delighted to be receiving this investment, obviously, but we’re really excited to be receiving it from a company like SEEK who understands and believes in our business and what we can achieve together. They are also a really good match to both us and our founding shareholder, The Open University, in their stated purpose to help people live more fulfilling and productive working lives and help organisations. You can watch how they bring their purpose to life.

They’re a great new investor for us and we can’t wait to start working with them. We hope you’re as excited as we all are for the future.

    this is the great efforts by the British council and the group that consulting to work together and congratulations to all the activity group in this filed >

  • Anthony Mazikana

    Wow congratulations!!!


    Congratulations on the announcement, but the problem is – although the courses are free, the request for the certificates will it be cheaper for South Africa or maybe free? With the rand being so weak against overseas money units and the work issue against whites in South Africa, the government’s Black Economic Empowerment policies have drawn criticism from some economists, because although it has resulted in some individuals becoming wealthy, it has not addressed the broader masses. Nevertheless, black empowerment is a key government initiative. Restrictive labor regulations and a lack of skills and educational development have contributed to large-scale unemployment whites – we can’t afford to apply for the certificates – so we have no evidence that we did a course online, and passed the course in question.

  • Harriet Efua Quaicoe

    that’s amazing

  • Shahzaib Jaan

    Best Wishes !!

  • Shobana Gomes

    Congratulations! Best wishes for the company to reach greater heights!

  • Willie Stewart

    Great news that Seek is joining The Open University as 50/50 shareholders in FutureLearn.
    As a higher education careers counsellor in Wales I worked with Open University students for many years. It was a magical experience seeing students achieving their dreams. One OU student went on to establish an international charitable organisation working in Third World countries.
    Now in the 15 th year of my retirement I have completed many Future Learn courses with a whole variety of Universities — Mindfulness with Monash, Ageing with Trinity College Dublin (my alma mater) courses in Psychology and Healthy Living.
    I know the OU will add great value and enrich the work of Future Learn. Best Wishes.

  • Denis Briggs

  • shirley

    Congratulations. I am looking forward to doing more with you. Thank you.

  • Helen

    In reports in the finance media about SEEK’s investment in Futurelearn, students are referred to as being part of the “human capital market”. This is not an environment I want to be in with my studies. Corporate speak, corporate values.

    Given that SEEK’s business model is largely based on the collection and use of personal information, will there be any change in Futurelearn’s privacy practices? Will SEEK have access to the personal information Futurelearn has collected from us in the past? Will we be required to have profiles with the SEEK corporation in the future?

  • Audrey Foster

    This is great news. It means that you will be able to expand your courses and include new ones. Education is wonderful. You can never stop learning. Future Learn must be very excited. You have done so well. This will increase your already excellent work, where you have attracted top rate, extremely helpful tutors. My very best wishes and congratulations to the number one Learning area for adults.

  • Ngozi Enogieru


  • David Spector

    Will student’s details now be used for “marketing” ? It looks like an awful lot of money for altruistic reasons and the “fit” is far from obvious.

  • Deborah Adeyemo

    This is good news to learners. I wish both organisations the very best.

  • Cecilia Cheung

    It is great to hear that FutureLearn is having SEEK such a good partner to bring an extra dimension in the field of education, especially for helping people to gain skills in the world of work. I hope FutureLearn not only will add more relevant courses to meet the skills gap, but also help people to get a taste of the work involved by providing work experience or internship.

  • Jhon Jairo Valero

    Congratulations, thanks so much for sharing whit us this news.

  • Kelvin Tembo

Remember this please, all at seek. GO FOR IT WITH FUTURE LEARN & THE O.U. Thus spaketh the not so wise but quite ancient Owl of Wales.

  • Abdulrahman Abdu

    Amazing and very thoughtful Congratulations

  • Laura

    Although investment is great news for you as a business, I was hoping that this news would bring changes. The reality is that I haven’t taken part in a single course since your upgrades were brought in (which seemed to be more of a downgrade for anyone who was used to the free learning options). I was optimistic when unlimited membership were brought in, but £209 is quite pricey. I used to really value the idea that I could learn at my own pace, but that’s not really possible anymore.
    It’s such a shame that this has happened because I really loved (and frequently recommended) the old FutureLearn. It would be nice if the investment allowed you to be more flexible with the free level of your courses.

  • Mandy Ogbaje

    Congratulations dear. Wishing u the best in this union

  • Trevor Jenkins

    With the recent emailings from FL that only focus on and promote business/commercial MOOCs will this business/commercial partner see all the interesting courses — creative writing, literary, historical, dance, cultural, cross-cultural — being dropped.

    • Kiran Patel

      Firstly congratulations!
      I have similar concerns as Trevor that commercial pressures may drive out arts and cultural studies.

    Helen Yoxall and anyone else who is interested, Futurelearn is a private limited company, so it has shareholders but is not listed on the stock exchange.


    As one of the global Future learners, I would to thank the Open University and all the other partner Universities for their efforts in making education easier. Further I also would like to congratulate Simon nelson in person and the SEEK group for this update and progress.

    Yours Sincerely



    I have thoroughly enjoyed all the courses at Future Learn, this is an opportunity to say
    THANK YOU and wish you all the very best

    Funds are all the time welcomed BUT ALL the time there is a benefit for the provider.
    In this case we hope that it will be for a good cause and NOT be ADVERTISING FEES.
    Like other people mentioned previously, is Futurelearn a stock exchange company? or another person wondering if can block SEEK email advertising. Those are very obvious questions. But WE wait and see the results.

  • Renee Grootenboer

    What a forward step. Surely SEEK will help align people’s vocational development goals with their learning opportunities. Let me know when you have certified courses for applied theory in art therapy. I already have a Master’s in Disability Studies and Developmental Education and am art and developmental psychology literate. I am seeking appropriate study options for future entry into this area. Just putting ideas in your board room heads (I hope 🙂 Congratulations. Renee G.

  • Helen Yoxall

    I don’t understand. I thought the Open University, created by Royal Charter, was a registered charity. What is the meaning of this Australian corporation becoming a “shareholder” in Futurelearn? What kind of entity is Futurelearn? A company listed on the stock exchange?

The last courses I have joined (last one Dyslexia etc) I have been unable to get back onto the course, being directed to jin course if I wish to see this. hope there is a remedy, even tho I am an eighty year old ‘interest only’ learner. thank you and wishing you the best of partnerships. xx
