Connect your personal LinkedIn account to LinkedIn Learning

If you already have a personal LinkedIn account, you can connect it to your LinkedIn Learning account. When you login to LinkedIn Learning, you will be asked if you want to connect your accounts. This is optional. 

Connecting your profile provides additional benefits such as the ability to publish completed courses (as a certification / badge) and receiving personalised course recommendations. You can also retain your learning history if you leave the University. 

If you connect your accounts, you can access LinkedIn Learning by logging in to your personal account and clicking on “Learning” in the top navigation. 

If you haven't already connected your LinkedIn profile to your LinkedIn Learning account, it's quick and easy to do:

Important: if you do connect your personal profile, any emails sent by the University via LinkedIn Learning (such as recommending courses) will be diverted to your primary Linkedin email address. The University will not have access to any of your profile details and your account information will remain confidential.

Data Collection and Data Sharing

When you register for and use a LinkedIn Learning account the University shares the following information with LinkedIn:

LinkedIn Learning will then provide this information back to the University with details of the courses viewed (ie course name, when viewed, how far completed etc) via an administration area within the learning resource. This allows members of University staff, with the permitted administration access, to analyse and report on the use of the LinkedIn Learning resource.

More information about how LinkedIn Learning collects and uses your information can be found in the LinkedIn Learning Privacy Policy, the LinkedIn Learning Cookie Policy and the LinkedIn Learning User Agreement.
