Information about LinkedIn Learning

LinkedIn Learning offers thousands of courses on business, technical and creative skills and is free to all students and staff.


Sign in

To sign in to LinkedIn Learning you can either use our single sign-on (SSO) link - this will take you straight to the University log in page or go through the main LinkedIn Learning site, both options will take you to your account.

New users will be given the option to connect an existing personal LinkedIn account or go straight to LinkedIn Learning.

Sign in to LinkedIn Learning with SSO


Not everyone chooses to have a LinkedIn profile or wants to connect their LinkedIn Profile connected to their LinkedIn Learning account. During activation you will have a choice of whether to connect to a LinkedIn profile or just use LinkedIn Learning which is provided separately by the University. If you do choose to link to a LinkedIn profile:

  • The University do not see any information from your personal LinkedIn account, only the profile picture.
  • You will get a more personalised learning experience that includes recommendations based on job title, skills and industry from your profile.
  • There will be more relevant insights into learning trends and what your contacts and key people with similar interests are recommending.
  • LinkedIn Learning certificates of completion can be added to a personal profile. If you later get LinkedIn Learning after leaving the University, you will be able to match up your learning history.



Yes you can, to do this:

  1. Log in to your LinkedIn Learning account.
  2. Navigate to any course.
  3. Start the course.
  4. Go to the Q&A in the top right hand corner.
  5. You will see the option to connect your LinkedIn account.
