LinkedIn Learning

LinkedIn Learning is an online platform which allows you access thousands of courses to enhance your employability skills anywhere with an internet connection! Broken into 3 primary sections, Business skills, Technical skills and Creative skills, LinkedIn Learning can help you feel more confident with specific software such as Python or SPSS or help you to develop the vital soft skills employers look for in today's graduate market such as leadership or negotiation skills.

As a current student of the University of Southampton you're able to access LinkedIn Learning for free using your Southampton email address and if you have a LinkedIn account already you can even link your profile to show employers the courses you've completed. (Please note if you link your profile to your LinkedIn Learning account you will need to sign into your account using the original email address you signed up for LinkedIn with).

Below you can see the LinkedIn Learning collections we have created to help you in developing your employability skills as well as links to faculty specific courses which you may find useful.


LinkedIn Learning collections are groups of videos with a similar theme. You can watch any videos within the collection which take your interest and there is no set order to watch the videos.
