Frequently Asked Questions

  • Access to lectures and assignments depends on your type of enrollment. If you take a course in audit mode, you will be able to see most course materials for free. To access graded assignments and to earn a Certificate, you will need to purchase the Certificate experience, during or after your audit. If you don't see the audit option:

    • The course may not offer an audit option. You can try a Free Trial instead, or apply for Financial Aid.
    • The course may offer 'Full Course, No Certificate' instead. This option lets you see all course materials, submit required assessments, and get a final grade. This also means that you will not be able to purchase a Certificate experience.
  • When you purchase a Certificate you get access to all course materials, including graded assignments. Upon completing the course, your electronic Certificate will be added to your Accomplishments page - from there, you can print your Certificate or add it to your LinkedIn profile. If you only want to read and view the course content, you can audit the course for free.

  • You will be eligible for a full refund until two weeks after your payment date, or (for courses that have just launched) until two weeks after the first session of the course begins, whichever is later. You cannot receive a refund once you’ve earned a Course Certificate, even if you complete the course within the two-week refund period. See our full refund policy.

  • Yes, Coursera provides financial aid to learners who cannot afford the fee. Apply for it by clicking on the Financial Aid link beneath the "Enroll" button on the left. You’ll be prompted to complete an application and will be notified if you are approved. Learn more.

  • Students can take this course for free or elect to purchase a certificate for $64 AUD.

    Learners who pre-enroll in an upcoming session can immediately access unlocked course resources, including:

    · videos

    · slideshows

    · readings

    · all assessments except peer review assignments

    They can’t access peer review assignments before the session begins (every 4 weeks) because there needs to be enough learners enrolled in the session to grade the assignments in a timely manner. Once a session is active, learners gain access to all assessments and resources.

  • As this is an open online course, anyone in the world can enrol!

  • The Enrol Now button on the left hand side of the course page indicates when the next session will begin. Once students have enrolled and are engaging with the course on a weekly basis, they will receive regular email updates about the progression of the course.

  • This Course doesn't carry university credit, but some universities may choose to accept Course Certificates for credit. Check with your institution to learn more. Online Degrees and Mastertrack™ Certificates on Coursera provide the opportunity to earn university credit.
