UC's Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) platform is called UCx. MOOCs are usually short and delivered online to thousands and sometimes millions of students. Online course content is presented using high-quality video segments and there's an emphasis on learning rather than assessment. Check out all the free online courses available from UC.


The UC Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) platform, named UCx, opened enrolments for its Online Courses in October 2020. Typically of short duration, MOOCs are delivered online to thousands and sometimes millions of students, with online course content presented through high-quality video segments, and an emphasis on learning, rather than assessment.

UC strives to deliver excellent, research-informed education, and creative and innovative research with staff who are empowered to make a real difference to societies here and around the world. UC prepares its graduates to care, think and be future ready.

With the launch of the new UC Strategic Vision in 2020, one of UC’s key objectives is providing accessible, flexible, and future focused learning opportunities for our students. Joining global education provider edX has enabled UC to offer free, short online courses in a variety of disciplines to the world.
