The coronavirus pandemic has caused our common learning practices to be reformulated, opting for new study modalities through the Internet. Participating in a virtual class or "attending" a video conference is no longer a novelty, and now more than ever, we have a wide variety of educational content to develop from home.

This is precisely what we will see in the new agenda of virtual courses that has just been announced by the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) , the highest higher-level educational institution in the country, and one of the best universities in Latin America .

We are talking about a dozen virtual trainings with an estimated duration of 4 to 6 weeks per course, in addition to the possibility of having a digital certification at the end.

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

  • How do I register for the UNAM courses? Enter the links that 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 enroll in more than one course? Of course! In reality, it all depends on your organizational capacity and availability to meet the required workload.
  • How can I request the UNAM certificate? Each virtual course offers us the possibility of requesting a digital certification at the end of all the learning modules. The benefit of the accreditation granted by the UNAM has a symbolic cost, but in no way conditions the free access to the course from beginning to end.

Having clarified these points, we share the new launches of free courses offered by UNAM:
