The Centre for Robert Burns Studies at Glasgow University

Starting 25 Jan 2016.
In celebration of Burns Night 2016, the Centre for Robert Burns Studies at the University of Glasgow, in partnership with Futurelearn, will be launching the first Massively Open Online Course (MOOC) on Robert Burns.

The course ‘Robert Burns: Poems, Songs, and Legacy’ is free and open to all. We’re aiming to attract newcomers as well as long-time fans of the poet, including those with an interest in Scottish history and culture, or just poetry, literature and song in general.

This course will introduce learners to the life, works, and posthumous reputation of Burns. Over the course of three weeks, learners will explore three core questions:
Who was Robert Burns?
What made Robert Burns a poetic genius?
What made Burns a worldwide icon?

In the process, learners engage with diverse materials including poems, songs, music and video, as well as original publications and manuscripts by Burns and objects made to commemorate the poet.

Registration for the course is now open at
