FREE Online Courses - alison.com

Updated: Jan 30, 2021

As we mentioned briefly in one of our previous posts 'Keeping Yourself Occupied During Lockdown' there is a website we've been enjoying during quarantine in which you can browse and study over 1500 online courses for free all from the comfort of your own home.

We've found this to be very helpful especially during times like this when you're bored out of your brains and stuck on your phone not really doing anything useful with your time. Even though quarantine is coming to an end and we're all slowly starting to get back to reality, Alison is still a great website to go on when you've got a spare hour or two.

With over 2.5 million graduates, Alison Courses provides nine different categories including marketing, lifestyle, language and business that they update every week by launching brand new courses. These categories include multiple sub categories that make finding your ideal subject a lot easier, there is so much variety across the website that we can guarantee that you will find a course that tickles your fancy.

If you are eager to learn something new but you're completely unsure of which direction you want to go, Alison have a career guide, a practical interface that helps you make a decision and of course you can study as many different subjects as you'd like, there is no limit.

Personally, we've been enjoying the Social Media Marketing course alongside the English Literature just to brush up on our writing skills and obviously because social media is a big part of what we want to do so it's always good to have the extra knowledge. The next course i'm looking at studying is "Understanding Zen - Personal Development and Zen Teachings". Spirituality and personal development is something we're both very interested in, more so during this time, so I feel like this course is very fitting and will benefit both of us.

The website itself is so easy to navigate, you can set study reminders which I think is so helpful, especially if you're like me and you're a bit forgetful. Alison also keeps track of your progress and even sets you little goals to earn medals and week streaks and once you've completed your course you can purchase your very own certificate to showcase your hard work. They also offer a premium membership for £7.99 a month and you can get the following...

  • Remove All Adverts

  • Full Access to CV Builder Features

  • Exclusive Monthly Discounts

  • Your Discounts Never Expire

  • Up to 50% OFF Your Certification

But of course you don't have to become a premium member to enjoy all the free courses, this is just an added bonus.

If you are interested in browsing through the categories and perhaps starting one of the courses, be sure to head over to https://alison.com/ and let us know which ones have caught your eye, we would love to hear your feedback so make sure you drop us a message on Instagram or even leave a comment on this post.
