Summary
LinkedIn Learning logoLinkedIn Learning

LinkedIn Learning is one of the largest online learning platforms, which can offer a lot of benefits that we like through the direct integration into the LinkedIn platform, like LinkedIn Premium access, as well as the direct integration of certificates from LinkedIn Learning into your LinkedIn profile. The instructors on LinkedIn Learning are highly qualified, and the courses cover all relevant career-focussed skills, which is why we can particularly recommend LinkedIn Learning for young professionals trying to upskill.

Mindvalley logoMindvalley

Mindvalley offers a unique collection of courses on spirituality, mindfulness and health, created with popular figures from the space. We like that the courses have a consistently high quality and come in easily digestible bite-sized formats. Overall, we recommend Mindvalley for students that want "life advice" and courses that are inspirational, rather than just practical. If you're looking to acquire more concrete skills, other platforms might be better suited for you.
