Classes For Free (No, Really!)

Want to learn something new or start your career? Is the mortgage-like cost of college preventing you? Then go to Coursera. It’s a website with free (no asterisk-included) classes from accredited universities.

And by accredited universities, they mean really good schools. Some of the top in the world! UPenn, Stanford, Princeton, Northwestern University! If you’ve ever dreamed of going to an Ivy-League school, but weren’t Hermione Granger-smart, then this is your chance!

Coursera offers courses in almost every subject you can imagine! Social Media Marketing, Finance, Programming, Philosophy.

Unfortunately, if you take the classes for free, you don’t get a certificate signaling your completion. You do have to pay for that. Still, most specializations (which are basically mini-degrees ) are less than $1,000. Not bad to say you casually “went to Stanford.”

So, if you want to get that top-rate education but not be drowning in $30,000 minimum of debt when you’re 23, consider Coursera!
