Premium courses involve learners paying a fee before they can access the course.
Premium courses are offered alongside our other courses on FutureLearn, eg. in course lists, in search and recommendations.
Is a premium course right for you?
The below is not a list of mandatory course features, but partners should aim to offer as many as possible.

Will learners experience all the usual benefits of FutureLearn?
Yes. The learner experience on a paid-for course is very similar to other courses and will be familiar to seasoned FutureLearners. The smaller cohorts should mean that educator interactions can be more tailored towards individuals.
Is there more moderation for premium courses?
Moderation is provided across the platform and so we provide the same level as presently offered on other courses.
How is pricing set for premium courses?
FutureLearn works with its course creating partners to set prices for premium courses, by evaluating a number of factors relating to the course material. We do this on a case-by-case basis with partners. We will evaluate courses between runs and adjust pricing based on performance.
