The coronavirus pandemic has led to a reformulation of our common learning practices and opted for new study modalities via the Internet. Taking part in a virtual class or “joining” a video conference is no longer a novelty, and now more than ever we can develop a variety of educational content from home.

This is exactly what we’re going to see in the new virtual course agenda that the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), the highest higher education institution in the country, and one of the best universities in Latin America.

We’re talking about a dozen virtual trainings with an estimated duration of 4 to 6 weeks per course, in addition to the ability to receive digital certification at the end.

Before we present the list of university courses, we will answer some frequently asked questions:

  • How do I register for the UNAM courses? Enter the links we share below, read the information of the course that interests you, and finally, register by creating a user account (or log in if you already have an account).
  • Can I register for more than one course? Naturally! In reality, it all depends on your organizational capacity and availability to handle the required workload.
  • How can I request the UNAM certificate? Every virtual course gives us the opportunity to request digital certification at the end of all learning modules. The advantage of the accreditation granted by UNAM is symbolic, but in no way implies free access to the course from start to finish.

Now that we’ve clarified these points, let’s share the new launches of free courses offered by UNAM:
