Free Online Blockchain Courses

Whether you’re new to blockchain or have some familiarity with it, you can study the basics of blockchain from the comfort of your own home, for free. A small number of universities offer free introductory online blockchain courses, including:

  • The University of Technology Sydney offers a free online blockchain taster course. Get Ready for Blockchain explores how blockchain technology can offer solutions for a range of issues across different industries. The course is self-paced and can be started anytime.
  • Zigurat Innovation & Technology Business School offers a free online course called Blockchain Essentials. The introductory course is part of the first module of the Global Master’s in Blockchain Technologies degree program, accredited by the University of Barcelona. Students receive six video classes on a weekly basis, and a certificate upon completion.
  • Princeton University offers a free online course on Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency Technologies. The introductory 11-week course is taught by Arvind Narayanan, an Associate Professor of Computer Science and co-author of a seminal textbook on cryptocurrency technologies.
  • The University of Nicosia (UNIC) offers the first course of its Master of Science (MS) in Digital Currency degree program as a free MOOC. The Introduction to Digital Currencies course provides an introductory overview of decentralized blockchain-based digital currencies. It is co-taught by leading Bitcoin expert Andreas Antonopoulos and UNIC CEO Antonis Polemitis. There are two cohorts a year, in Fall and Spring.

Many more online blockchain courses are available free to audit, meaning that you can access the course materials for free but must pay to receive graded assignments or receive a certificate.

Free to Audit Online Blockchain Courses

Coursera and edX are two of the leading online learning platforms for higher education, home to over 75 million learners. Both were founded in 2012 – Coursera by two Stanford University professors and edX by Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Top universities from around the world now partner with them to offer 100% online blockchain courses.

Most courses offered through these platforms are free to audit – allowing you to access course videos, lectures, readings, ungraded assignments, and to participate in discussion forums. However, if you want to access graded assignments and receive a shareable certificate (upon completion), you will need to pay. These programs are therefore listed as ‘Free or Paid’ in our database of University Blockchain Courses.

Coursera Online Blockchain Courses

To take a course for free with Coursera, you need to select the ‘Audit the course’ option when enrolling. Alternatively, prices start at about $39 per course. Upon payment, students have 180 days in which to complete the course and earn a Course Certificate. If you audit the course you can choose to upgrade to the paid version – and earn a Course Certificate – at any time.

Coursera also offers Specializations, comprising a number of individual courses. Fees start at $39 per month, with access granted to all courses in the Specialization. Upon completion of each of the required Course Certificates, students are also awarded a Specialization Certificate. Students who cannot afford to pay for a Course Certificate or Specialization Certificate can apply for financial aid or a scholarship.

Universities offering online blockchain courses through Coursera include:

  • The University of Pennsylvania offers an introductory online course on Cryptocurrency & Blockchain as part of its FinTech Specialization. The course provides students with an understanding of cryptocurrency, the intricacies of blockchain technology, and a strategy for incorporating cryptocurrency into investment plans.
  • Duke University offers an online course on Blockchain Business Models as part of its Entrepreneurial Finance Specialization. The course examines various blockchain technologies and the business situations in which they can be deployed, as well as the risks in doing so. Duke also offers a course on FinTech Law & Policy, which looks at the legal, regulatory, and policy issues associated with cryptocurrencies and initial coin offerings.

EdX Online Blockchain Courses

To take a course for free with edX, you need to select the ‘Audit This Course’ option when enrolling. Alternatively, select ‘Pursue the Verified Track’ if you want to include unlimited course access, graded assignments, and a verified certificate. Fees for the verified track are typically between $50 and $300 per course. Financial assistance (up to 90%) is available to students who cannot afford to pay full price. You can also choose to start a course in the audit track and upgrade to the verified track later.

Similar to Coursera’s ‘Specializations’, edX offers Professional Certificate programs made up of a number of individual courses.  Students are awarded a Professional Certificate once they have earned a verified certificate for each course in the program.

Universities offering online blockchain courses through edX include:

Paid Online Blockchain Courses

Many universities now offer paid online blockchain courses. These are often executive programs and professional certificates, specifically designed for working professionals and business executives. As a result, course fees can be high. However, costs do vary and some courses are suitable for anyone interested in learning more about blockchain technology.

Universities offering paid online blockchain courses include:

  • Cornell University offers an online certificate program in Blockchain Essentials. The certificate consists of four two-week courses: Cryptocurrencies & Ledgers; Cryptography Essentials; Blockchain Fundamentals; and Applications of Blockchain Technology.
  • Stanford University offers a short professional online course on Blockchain & Cryptocurrency, which covers the basics of blockchain technology and how cryptocurrencies are created, transacted, and stored. A similar online course exploring the technical aspects of Cryptocurrencies & Blockchain Technologies is offered as part of the Cybersecurity Graduate Certificate.
  • Duke University offers an online certificate in Blockchain Applications. The program focuses on applying blockchain technology to real-world business challenges and comprises courses on: What is Blockchain; Blockchain & Cryptocurrencies; and Blockchain Mechanics. Delivered through Coursera, the certificate is a real module from Duke’s Master of Engineering in FinTech program.   
  • Portland State University offers two online blockchain certificates. The Business Blockchain Certificate is taught at the undergraduate level, while the Business Blockchain Graduate Certificate is taught at the graduate level and designed for business professionals. Both programs focus on how blockchain technology can be applied to transform a variety of business sectors.
  • Loyola Marymount University offers three eight-week online blockchain courses, in collaboration with EmergingEd. Blockchain Foundations & Frameworks provides an introduction to blockchain technology, including cryptocurrency. Blockchain & Industry explores strategies for implementing blockchain technologies within an organization. Blockchain Cases covers public and private blockchains, and smart contract programming.
  • Oxford University offers the Oxford Blockchain Strategy Program, a six-week online blockchain course aimed at business leaders. A strong emphasis is placed on ensuring that decision-makers have sufficient understanding of blockchain to make organizational decisions.
  • The London School of Economics (LSE) offers a Cryptocurrency & Disruption online certificate course. The online course explores blockchain and cryptocurrencies, and the future implications for business and the economy.
  • University College London (UCL) offers an executive online blockchain course called Blockchain Rules. The course explores economic, legal, and regulatory issues related to breakthrough blockchain technologies.
  • Amity University Online offers online certificate programs in Blockchain Management and Blockchain Technology & Management. The online graduate programs cover blockchain and programming fundamentals, including public, private, and federated blockchains, and tools such as Solidity and Corda.
  • The Institute of Management Technology, Ghaziabad (IMT Ghaziabad) offers an online executive program in Blockchain Technology Management. The five-month certificate program emphasizes how to approach real-world business problems from the perspective of a blockchain consultant.
  • The International Institute of Information Technology, Bangalore (IIIT Bangalore) offers an online graduate certificate in Blockchain Technology and an online graduate diploma in Software Development (Blockchain). The six-month certificate program and 12-month diploma program prepare students to become blockchain developers, by learning coding from scratch and creating smart contracts.
  • Dalhousie University offers an online Certificate in Blockchain. The program consists of three modules and explores blockchain networks, blockchain platforms, cryptocurrencies, and blockchain use cases.

Campus Blockchain Courses

While many blockchain courses are delivered online, a significant number of universities offer on-campus blockchain courses. Unsurprisingly, these tend to be paid courses. However, due to health and safety concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic, many universities are postponing on-campus courses and switching to remote instruction via online platforms.

Universities still offering campus blockchain courses include:

  • Singapore Management University (SMU) offers a wide variety of campus blockchain courses, including an advanced certificate in Blockchain for Business, and a Blockchain Developer certification program. The SMU campus is located in the downtown centre of Singapore, close to the headquarters of many leading financial and corporate institutions.
  • The University of Zurich offers a Certificate of Advanced Studies in Blockchain. Targeted at professional practitioners, the certificate is taught on-campus at the Center for Continuing Education in Zurich, Switzerland. The program is split into three modules and students cover topics including smart contracts, blockchain platforms, cryptocurrencies, and data protection.

Non-English Language Blockchain Courses

The majority of university blockchain courses are taught in English. However, non-English language blockchain courses are also available. The Spanish-speaking community is particularly well served, with universities from Argentina, Colombia, and Spain offering a range of blockchain courses, certificates, diplomas, and degrees.

Universities offering non-English language blockchain courses include:

  • Austral University in Argentina offers an online course on Blockchain Disruption, taught in Spanish and delivered through the Coursera platform. The free to audit five-week course provides an introductory overview of the technical, economic, legal, and social impact of blockchain technology.
  • The University of Palermo in Argentina offers an executive online course on Blockchain Development, taught in Spanish. The 16-week course is delivered on-campus in Buenos Aires, and is aimed at developers and innovators of blockchain-based systems. Students will learn how to develop decentralized applications in Solidity, and how to use the Ethereum platform.
  • The Pontifical Xavierian University in Colombia offers an online course on Blockchain Technology Fundamentals, taught in Spanish and delivered through the edX platform. The free to audit five-week course examines the origins of blockchain technology, potential blockchain applications, and challenges to achieving mass adoption.
  • Esade Ramon Llull University in Spain offers an Innovation in Finance: FinTech & Blockchain online certificate. Taught in Spanish, the online program explores the impact that new technologies are having on the financial sector, including blockchain, cryptocurrencies, artificial intelligence, and big data.
  • The International University of La Rioja (UNIR), an online university based in Spain, offers an online certificate in Blockchain Application Development, and an online course on Blockchain Applied to Business. Both programs are taught in Spanish and cover how to apply blockchain technology to different business models.
  • The Innovation & Entrepreneurship Business School (IEBS), an online university based in Spain, offers an online graduate Diploma in Blockchain. Taught in Spanish, the program provides an overview of blockchain technology, including Initial Coin Offerings, decentralized Apps, smart contracts, and cryptocurrencies.
  • The Moscow Institute of Physics & Technology in Russia offers an online course on Blockchain Technology, taught in Russian and delivered through the Coursera platform. The free to audit four-week course provides an introduction to blockchain technology, cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin, and the Ethereum platform.
  • The University of Liechtenstein offers a Blockchain & FinTech certificate. The program is taught primarily in German (with some English) on-campus in Vaduz, the capital of the Principality. The certificate program covers the basics of FinTech and blockchain technology, including cryptocurrencies.
  • SGH Warsaw School of Economics is the oldest business school in Poland and offers graduate studies in Blockchain, Smart Contracts & Digital Currencies. Taught in Polish, the program lasts two semesters with classes taught on-campus at weekends.

Blockchain Courses for Matriculated Students

Blockchain courses offered exclusively to matriculated students are beyond the scope of our database of university blockchain courses. There are likely thousands of blockchain classes available to undergraduate and graduate degree-seeking students at universities worldwide. For example, Coinbase found that Cornell University alone offers 14 classes on blockchain and cryptocurrency.

If you are a matriculated student interesting in taking a blockchain course, we recommend you search your university’s course catalog or Schedule of Classes. You may need to search for a variety of different terms including: blockchain; cryptocurrency; crypto; distributed ledger; DLT; financial technology; FinTech; Bitcoin.

Continuing with the example of Cornell University, students could search the Courses of Study to find course offerings for the academic year, or search the Class Roster to view scheduled classes by term.

If you are unable to find any blockchain classes at your university, check whether your university has a blockchain club. These student-run organizations sometimes provide alternative blockchain classes, and encourage the introduction of accredited blockchain classes to the university curriculum.

Non-University Blockchain Courses

Our regularly updated database only includes blockchain courses offered by accredited universities and colleges. However, there are many other high-quality blockchain courses available from other institutions.

The Coursera and edX learning platforms offer a range of online blockchain courses, from the likes of the New York Institute of Finance, the Linux Foundation, the Association of International Certified Professional Accountants (AICPA), EIT Digital, and ConsenSys Academy.

Other online education providers like Udemy, Udacity and LinkedIn Learning offer numerous online blockchain and cryptocurrency courses.

  3. MOHIT DESABATHINA

    This information is very useful for the students who have an interest in Blockchain technology. Great job……
    Why don’t you add the world ranking in the column adjacent to the college’s names, it would very helpful for the selection of the colleges.

    1. Admin

      Hi Mohit. Thank you for the positive feedback, we are glad you found the information useful!

      We’ve previously considered including university rankings but there are challenges to this. There are no authoritative university rankings for blockchain, although CoinDesk and Coinbase have done some innovative work in this field. An alternative approach would be to list overall world rankings, using a source like the QS World University Rankings or U.S. News and World Report Best Global Universities. However, many of the universities at the forefront of blockchain education would not rank highly using this method, so it might be somewhat misleading.
