MOOCs for credits

Meet Elias from Sorbonne

By incorporating Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) in your educational portfolio, you will benefit from the expertise made available through online courses, not only from EPFL but also from its partner universities.

As of September 2018, you (and students from our partner universities) will be able to use online courses as part of a free elective, as electives in master programme, or in honour’s programmes. These online courses will include an assessment required to receive credits for MOOCs.

New courses in  September

For the new semester year starting September 2018, you can choose exciting new topics.
