Cardiff’s own Professor Patricia Price, Pro Vice-Chancellor, dealing with Student Experience and Academic Standards commented:

“We’re pleased to be one of the first universities to join FutureLearn and to lead the sector in Wales.

“We’re now delighted to see this exciting initiative launch which provides further opportunity to extend access across the world to our high quality education experience.

“Cardiff’s first MOOC will start in 2014, delivered by the pioneering Centre for the Study of Islam in the UK.”
