9 Free Certificates for Coursera’s 9th Birthday [Ends April 30]

The COVID-19 lockdowns led to unprecedented interest in online courses. In late March 2020, Coursera responded by introducing 100 free certificates . Initially, these were to remain free until the end of May. But the offer proved so successful for Coursera, that it was extended — first until July 31, then through 2020.

But things didn’t end there. To kick off 2021, Coursera allowed learners to redeem a free certificate from a list of 25+ courses. And in late March, they announced a list of ~20 free certificate courses to the celebrate Holi, the Indian festival of colours.

New Limited-Time Offer
Now, Coursera has introduced a new offer. To celebrate the company’s 9th birthday, they’re offering 9 free certificate courses. You can find these below. Each learner can redeem just one course. The offer is valid until April 30, 2021.

The promotion includes courses from Duke, Michigan, Illinois, Google Cloud, AWS, and the Berklee College of Music, among others. Some courses about COVID-19 from Johns Hopkins and Stanford University also currently have free certificates.
