In this post find out more about our partnership with the British Council, the Study UK campaign, and whether you might be eligible for a free certificate.

Update: the Study UK Campaign on FutureLearn has finished. We’re happy to say we’ve given away 10,000 certificates to those who need them. We’ll post about any future campaigns on the blog, so keep an eye out.

A few weeks ago we announced that we were partnering with the British Council as part of the Study UK campaign.

The British Council is the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities. They work with over 100 countries across the world in the fields of arts and culture, English language, education and civil society.

This year the British Council launched the Study UK campaign, which aims to share the benefits of UK education with learners all over the world. We’re playing our part by offering free Certificates of Achievement, so eligible learners can celebrate their learning and get a taste of learning in the UK.

Who can get a Certificate?

When we launched the campaign with the British Council you needed to live in one of 37 countries to get a free certificate, but due to overwhelming demand the campaign is extending to include over 140 countries!
