At edX, we believe that your big ideas start here. And we’re committed to helping you get to where you want to be, in as streamlined a way as possible. That’s why we’re always looking for ways to improve your edX experience, including how you enroll in a program.
We listened to your feedback, and today, we’re excited to now offer bundled program purchasing for our MicroMasters programs and Professional Certificate programs!
Why is this a “win” for you?
Now, you have the option to purchase all of the courses in a program upfront in a single transaction, at a 10% discount. You can commit early to completing a program, but then have the flexibility to choose the course sessions that best fit with your schedule.
Our research shows that when learners purchase a verified certificate in a course or program, they are more motivated to complete that program! Verified Certificates can be displayed on a LinkedIn profile or resume, signaling to potential or current employers that you’ve mastered a skill or subject area.
Where can you see this on the site?
When you visit the program page for either a MicroMasters program or Professional Certificate program, you’ll see the option to “Pursue the Program.” By choosing this option you are purchasing and enrolling in all of the courses in the MicroMasters program or Professional Certificate program, with the option to select which session of each course you would like to take.
Once you’ve opted to “Pursue the Program,” you’ll pay for your program, and then be directed to choose the course sessions you want to take. You have up to 15 months after purchase to select your course sessions, with the flexibility to switch sessions.
Our Support Page also has more information about choosing course sessions.
We’re so excited to bring you this update to help you achieve your learning goals, and look forward to bringing you more great features in the future.
