Short Courses - DCU FutureLearn

DCU supports a range of online short courses through our global strategic partnership with FutureLearn. We provide an increasing suite of online short courses and mini modules aimed at promoting greater access to higher education and more flexible pathways for life-long learning. Most of our short courses are free and they provide a great way to extend your mind and inspire you to further your education. Some of our DCU FutureLearn online short courses also provide credit towards a DCU qualification. In partnership with FutureLearn we also offer a number of Scholarships for online study for refugees and asylum seekers living in Ireland. In the future we plan to expand our range of online and blended short course offerings as part of DCU's commitment to opening up education through new digitally-enhanced models of teaching and learning. Current short courses include:
