Frequently asked questions
Do I need to pay anything to access LinkedIn Learning?
No – access to LinkedIn Learning is free for all members of the University. To continue using it once you leave the University, you would need to take out your own paid personal subscription directly from LinkedIn Learning.
What happens to my playlists and digital certificates if I leave the University?
You must download all of your data before leaving the institution. Unfortunately, when your University account is deactivated, you will no longer be able to utilise LinkedIn Learning for free. If you would like to continue to use LinkedIn Learning after leaving the institution, you can sign up for a paid consumer account by contacting LinkedIn customer services where your details may be migrated to a new account.
