Udacity gives free access to its tech nanodegrees for 30 days

  • Professional online course platform Udacity is offering everyone one month's free access to a selection of its tech nanodegrees to help with the lockdown.

    With the country on lockdown, many are turning to online courses to continue their studies or are using the downtime as an opportunity to reskill into a new career or discipline. Online learning platform Udacity is now running a special deal offering 30 days of free access to one the platform's 40 nanodegrees.

    The site's courses cover a wide range of business and tech skills, with nanodegrees in everything from project management and UX design to web development, machine learning, and cloud devops. The courses normally take between one and four months to complete at around 10 hours per week, but with the lockdown you could potentially complete them much more quickly.

    If you do sign up for one of the courses, make sure it's one that's marked as free for a month and set yourself a reminder for 30 days' time to cancel the account so you aren't accidentally charged hundreds of pounds at the end of the deal. Udacity even offers to send you an SMS alert to remind you to cancel the degree if you don't want to continue paying.

    The offer is available only to those in the Europe or the US currently, and Udacity plans to expand the scheme further in stages to help its services cope with demand.
