Course subscriptions and coupons

To enrol in a new course, a subscription code (coupon) is required. In addition, coupons assign a role to the user; “non-editing teacher” if you are a teacher or “student” if you are a student.

Each copy has a unique coupon code. This code can only be used once from one user profile. If there isn't any coupon code in your copy you should contact Hamilton House and ask for a new one.

Most coupon codes give you access to the courses for one year from the moment you start using them. However, teachers can ask for coupons with longer duration. For more details you should contact Hamilton House representatives.
First, you need to log into the platform using your account. On your home page open the side bar to find the coupon block and type your code. It might take a couple of minutes before your course appears in the Course Overview block.
