Singaporeans have a unique opportunity to boost their skills and enhance their knowledge without breaking the bank. Through the NLB x Udemy initiative, they can access a wide range of courses and improve their personal and professional growth, all for free.

Udemy is a world-renowned e-learning platform that provides a diverse selection of courses spanning various disciplines such as technology, business, arts, language, and others. Its aims to assist individuals from various age groups and backgrounds in learning new abilities and gaining knowledge to improve their professional growth, explore new hobbies or follow personal interests.

I have personally taken advantage of this opportunity by enrolling in courses on Search Engine Optimization, WordPress Website Management, and Web Development and have found the experience to be both informative and engaging.

Whether you’re looking to explore a new hobby, upgrade your skills, or simply expand your knowledge, Udemy’s free courses are a great place to start.

Please take note, there are different types of memberships:

  • Singaporeans can gain access to Udemy absolutely free of charge
  • Foreigners are required to pay a registration fee of $10.50 and a $42.80 annual fee
  • PRs need to pay a one-time registration fee of $10.50
