Towards Brexit? The UK’s EU Referendum

Haven't made your mind up on #Brexit yet? Take part in our free MOOC.

The University of Edinburgh, in association with FutureLearn, is offering a free EU Referendum MOOC starting June 13th.

Led by Anthony Salamone (PhD Candidate in Politics), the course team also includes Professor Charlie Jeffery and Professor Laura Cram.

The three-week course will guide participants through the referendum – before and after the vote. It will examine how the UK ended up having a referendum on EU membership, the campaign issues, public opinion and alternatives to being in the EU. In the final week, participants will then reflect on the result and what it means for the UK and the rest of Europe.

Join us as we explore one of the biggest decisions facing the UK in a generation: to remain in or to leave the European Union.

An introduction to the course is available on our European Futures site.

Course details and sign-up are available on our FutureLearn site.
