FutureLearn Choices is a collection of free online courses to bridge the gap between school and higher education. If you are aged 16 to 19 it could help you to choose the right degree, uni or career.
Making your higher, university or career choices can be one of the most important times of your life. These choices, and the application and interview processes that follow, can be daunting. But you’re not alone – according to the Office for National Statistics, there are around 3 million 16 to 19 year olds in the UK alone, who are making the same tough choices. We’ve just teamed up with 11 of our partner universities, to offer a range of free online courses for young adults, called FutureLearn Choices.
The courses offer 16 to 19 year olds the chance to:
- Try out new subjects: such as coding, robotics or forensic science, to get a taste of a degree or career in the field
- make a great university application: with advice on writing personal statements and preparing for interviews
- get ready for university: by gaining skills such as critical thinking or the advanced maths that’s required for degree-level study.
The courses are provided by many top UK universities, run for three to eight weeks during June and July, and can be taken anywhere, anytime on mobile, tablet or PC.
They’re designed to help you make the most of post-exam term time and the start of your summer holidays, so that you’re prepared for and relaxed about the important decisions you’ll need to make in the new academic year.
