Udemy courses make great gifts for friends, family and colleagues, and are easy to send. If you think a course you’re currently enrolled in would make for a terrific gift, you can quickly buy a second copy of the course and send it to the recipient. You can also purchase any course that you’re not enrolled in as a gift, by using the gift feature that’s on the course landing page.
This article outlines how you can send courses as gifts, and how you can redeem your gift if you’ve received one, and start your Udemy course.
How to Gift a Course You're Taking
To purchase a second copy of a course you’re already enrolled in, and send it as a gift, please follow the steps below:
- Navigate to the course player and click the ellipses at the top-right corner of the page.
- In the dropdown menu, click on Gift This Course.
- Enter the gift recipient’s name, email address, and the date you want the gift sent. You can also enter a personal message for them if you wish.

Please note that if the gift recipient doesn’t have an account on Udemy, they will need to create one before they can redeem the gift.
