Congratulations to Gloria Visintini and the rest of the Bristol MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) team!

On June 26th, the Cultural Studies and Modern Languages MOOC was awarded the University of Bristol Award for Education in the Faculty of Arts.

The course is a great introduction to the discipline and highly recommended for prospective students or interested friends and family.

It ran the first time for four weeks between February and March 2015. It attracted 14,622 registrations and received a lot of positive feedback from learners. Indeed, over 90% of people who took the post-course survey rated their overall experience of the course good or excellent. 96.43% of respondents said the course met or exceeded their expectations.

Thanks to Routes into Languages' funding, the MOOC will run again on 12th September 2016 for the fourth time. For more information or to register please visit https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/cultural-studies
