Choose from a variety of Freelance Career Paths to discover the best fit for you!
When we started freelancing online in 2003, there was virtually no support or training for those wanting to freelance. We had to figure everything out and learn the hard way. It was tough, but we got there in the end.
It’s our desire that you have the freedom to create your own business, define your work-life balance, and pursue a career path that fits your current stage of life perfectly.
That’s why we decided to launch Freelance University back in 2008 to provide a one-stop learning community. Since then, we’ve had the privilege of training over 25,000 students in more than 75+ countries.
Over the years, we have enjoyed the great freedom and flexibility of working from anywhere through many changes and seasons of life.
We would love to support you as you embark on your own freelance journey, so hope to see you soon!
Many online courses for freelancers cost up to $1,500 and those courses only teach ONE skill. And often there is no mentorship and community. So, you’re left on your own to figure things out.
Even if you skip the expensive courses and you just bought all the training you need from a course marketplace instead, at $10-$20 per course it adds up. It would still cost at least $800-$1000. That’s at a minimum.
And you may not have access to expert mentorship, a supportive community, and ongoing education like with Freelance University.
That’s why we’re not asking for $1,500 or even $1000 to enroll in Freelance University.
We’re giving you everything you need to start freelancing for one low monthly, quarterly or annual tuition plan.
We are absolutely confident that your enrollment at Freelance University will be an immensely valuable step forward for you, and will help you build a rewarding and profitable freelance business this year!
Still, we want to be absolutely sure it is the right fit for you. So take 15 days to check out and evaluate the University. If for some reason, you decide the University is not right for you, then please contact our team at [email protected] and we will cancel your enrollment plan and refund your tuition right away.

We are confident you will love us here at FreeU, but if for some reason, you are not 100% satisfied, we do provide a 15-day money back guarantee after you enroll in any of our enrollment plans.
Simply contact Support and we will cancel your future payments with us and refund your initial payment (no questions asked).
BUT, we are confident our relationship will be much longer than 15 days, so we look forward to growing our relationship over the next year!
**We do not provide any refunds outside of our 15-day money back guarantee period.
We do not require you to re-certify every year; however, we do encourage all students to refresh their skills. Therefore, when we launch a new or updated training course, we encourage you to take the new program. This will allow you to keep your skills current.
