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.

  • You can request the certificate at any time: before, during or once you finish the course.

  • · The course name

    · The instructor's signature

    · The logo of the partner institution offering the course

    · A verification URL that allows others to check the Certificate's authenticity

    · A statement that Coursera has confirmed the identity of the learner who completed the course

  • · Academic credit from the partner institution offering the course

    · The final grade you got in the course

    · Your ID photo

    Certificates are provided as downloadable PDF files, which you can print yourself. You can also share them electronically.

    Unfortunately, Coursera cannot provide course Certificates with any more information than they already include.

  • No. The certificate shows that the student has passed the course, but it is not an official qualification of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.
