10 Universities Offering Free Online Courses

Let’s take our education a step forward with this list of 10 universities offering free online courses. Honestly speaking, not everyone can afford the responsibility and finances needed to be able to attend and finish college. Many of today’s students take loans and even work in order to support themselves in their education. Even the most educated countries in the world only have roughly 50% of their population finishing tertiary education. With this, many of today’s top universities and colleges have taken advantage of the ever increasingly popular online community. A lot of them now offer courses to be taken online from the comfort of home and some of these courses are actually free.

When considering this list we don’t take into account what University is better or what course is better, if you want more information on that check out our list on the Best 7 Online Courses to Take: Free Finance MOOCs.
