You Can Now Enrol In This Harvard Photography Course For Free

Are you an avid photographer and have always dreamt of adding Harvard University credentials to your CV??Here is your chance (sort of).

Yes this is legitimate and true, but the only downside is that you can’t?actually tell your friends and family that you got accepted to Harvard. Soz

The course comes courtesy of ALISON?which is an online learning community and extension of Harvard.?The digital photography course is headed by computer scientist and photographer Dan Armendariz?and takes between 10 and 15 hours to complete and includes 13 modules.

But it won’t be a walk in the park. In order to get the ALISON diploma, participants must study and complete all modules and score 80% or more in each of the course assessments.

Once complete your certificate will be recognised worldwide.

But what if photography isn’t your thing? No problem, because there is a wide variety of free online courses available through the Harvard website ranging from world literature?and?bioethics?to?data analysis and?understanding Alzheimers disease. However, not all of these courses come with the ALISON accreditation.

You won’t actually get a prestigious Harvard credential, but you’ll have a wealth of new knowledge and?a host of new skills when you’re done.

If Harvard doesn’t tickle your fancy, there are plenty of free online courses available here in Ireland too. This website will help you find a number of courses in your chosen area; whether you want to learn new skills or enhance existing skills to get the right job, progress to third-level or to support the achievement of personal goals.
