The University has teamed up with FutureLearn to teach students of all ages about the life and times of Richard III through a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC). 

The six week course - the first of its kind at the University - started on 25 November and will cover a different feature of Richard III’s England each week, including The War of the Roses and Medieval Warfare, Medieval food and more!

MOOCs are held online to enable anyone to enrol within them and enjoy learning. Interest in the course has been high, with over 10,000 people signing up to the first release, which has now been fully booked. Similar numbers are expected for the second release.
