The FutureLearn shop is now open

Today, we’ve opened an online shop, where you can find a small selection of FutureLearn merchandise, as well as souvenir posters for two of our courses. Here, Lucy Blackwell, our Creative Director, explains how the shop came about.

FutureLearn shop

A few months ago, we created some goodies to celebrate our first birthday, and give to the partners and learners who’d been with us from the start. When we shared pictures of them on Twitter and Facebook, a lot of you asked how you could get your hands on them too.

The good news is that now you can – we have a limited number of these items for sale in an online shop. There are pencils, postcards, bags, T-shirts and even pocket-sized kites. All of the items are designed to reflect the values that underpin our free online courses – telling stories, provoking conversation and celebrating progress.

Souvenir course posters

We’re also trying out something completely new. Just as you might want to buy a memento when you visit a museum, gallery or theatre, we now have souvenir posters for two of our courses for sale – “How to Read a Mind” from the University of Nottingham and “Climate Change: Challenges and Solutions” from the University of Exeter.

New souvenir posters for two FutureLearn coursesWe’ve commissioned illustrators to design them, asking London’s Rob Lowe (aka Supermundane) and New York’s Otto Steininger to respond to some of the big questions that the courses pose. And as you can see from the designs above, they’ve done an amazing job!

We hope the posters will offer you a new way to remember and celebrate your time on FutureLearn, and show off what you’ve learnt to friends and family.

If you’d like to buy or learn more about any of the items mentioned here, head over to the FutureLearn shop now.

    I have paid for the Food for medicine PDF food guide as I’m currently on the course, the money has appeared on my credit card and I have not had confirmation of my order or the product bought, please look into urgently or give me my money back.

    Before I began this course, I read it was for free. But now I can read that I will need to pay some money for shipment. Please I am not working for some time now and I need to add this certificate to my CV to look for a job . Please can it be sent to me via my Email.

    • Hi Agatha, courses are free, but statements and certificates must be paid for. Shipping costs:

      £1.20 for UK
      £2.90 to Europe
      £3.20 to the rest of the world

      I’m afraid we can’t send this to you by email for free, however once purchased you will immediately get a digital version of the certificate which you can also add to your CV.

    LOVE the posters! My sister-in-law’s partner is a teacher and these would be brilliant for her gang of little kids. Start -em early!

    Great posters. “What happens when we read” reminds me of the “psychedelic” posters of the 1970’s. Wish I’d done these courses!

      Hi Jim,
      Thanks for your kind words. The course that the poster’s from, “How to Read a Mind,” only started yesterday (1 December), so there’s still plenty of time to join it:
      And you don’t have to do the course in order to buy a poster 😉
