How it Works


Decide what you want to study!

If you are not sure what you want to study, browse our course categories or subjects to see where your interests lie. With ALISON you can study whenever you want, wherever you want.


Find the right course

We offer courses at both certificate and diploma level, and with over 750 courses on ALISON, we are sure you will find what you need at a level that is right for you.


Get Enrolled

Once you have found a course you want to study, all you have to do is sign in or register your free account on ALISON, and then click on the start course button. Our courses are free and self-paced.


Take the Assessments

You can take or re-take an assessment on ALISON anytime you want, but we require scores of 80% or over to pass. Once you have passed all the assessments on your course, you are officially a certified ALISON graduate!


Get your Cert

Once you have completed your course, you can download your learner record as proof of your accomplishment. Should you like something more official, you can purchase a certificate and we will send it out by registered post.
