Online courses

Our successful, free online course “Developing your Research Project” runs throughout the academic year.

Visit the course page at FutureLearn

This 'massive open online course' is aimed at students working on extended projects such as the EPQ or the International Baccalaureate Extended Essay.

The course runs for eight weeks and covers every stage of the research process: from forming a research question and gathering sources to referencing, writing up and presenting. Participation in the course requires around one hour per week, with practical hands-on lessons and video guidance from Learn With US Transition researchers. 

Students will have the opportunity to share their ideas with fellow researchers from all over the world, to receive peer feedback on their research proposals and to review and comment on the work of other researchers as they develop their projects.

The course runs intermittently across the year, and further details can be found on the course page at FutureLearn.
