Udemy's updated pricing is now live. Have questions? Here are some of our most frequently asked questions.
How does pricing work on Udemy ?
All courses are priced between $20 and $200 each (see global prices here). Both Instructors and Udemy provide different discounts, but a course may never be discounted below $10 USD. As always, once you have purchased a course, you are able to learn at your own pace, and you have lifetime access to the course material as long as you have your Udemy account.
Does this pricing update affect my access to courses I’m enrolled in?
The updated pricing does not affect your access to the courses you are already enrolled in. You will continue to have lifetime access to these courses even if the price of the course changes. You will not be charged additionally for those courses if the price of the course changes.
Who determines the list price of a course?
The instructor of the course determines the list price of the course. Both Udemy and instructors can discount courses at any time.
How can I choose the best course for me?
There are many factors to consider when deciding which course is right for you. Here are some tips:
- View the Curriculum to get an overview of the topics covered
- Use our Free Preview feature to see if you’re comfortable with the teaching style
- Read the reviews to understand what other students shared about their course experiences
- Look at the Course Goals and Target Audience to determine if the goals and audience meet your expectations
- Contact the instructor to ask specific questions about the course
How are you calculating exchange rates?
We are using a country-specific price matrix to determine a student’s localized price. You can see the price matrix here. This matrix will be updated periodically to incorporate both exchange rate fluctuations and market-specific purchasing patterns. We hope this new price matrix will help you understand how Udemy calculates exchange rates.
A course I was enrolled in has been unpublished; do I still have access to the content?
Yes, you’ll continue to have lifetime access to all the courses you are enrolled in so long as you have access to your Udemy account. Please be sure to log in to your Udemy account to access your courses. If the content of a course you were enrolled in is removed, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Will Udemy continue to have promotions?
Yes, we will continue to have promotions that offer courses at discounted prices. The minimum sales price for all courses is $10. We will continue to support free courses.
There was a pricing change in April 4. What’s changed?
Based on student and instructor feedback and analysis of site behavior, as of August 22, we are allowing instructors to list the courses up to and including $200. Both Instructors and Udemy provide different discounts, but courses can never be discounted below $10 USD. We believe that a combination of pricing and promotions helps Udemy become an even more vibrant and accessible marketplace for both students and instructors.
I bought a course last month and it’s now being offered at a lower price, what should I do?
We will honor the best price available for any courses purchased 30 days after August 22, 2016, as long as the course is still available for purchase on Udemy. Please contact Support (email@example.com) with the exact title of the course in question so we can process the price adjustment.
Will I be charged additionally for courses I’ve already purchased?
There will be no additional charges for courses you're already enrolled in even if the price of that course changes. You will continue to have lifetime access to these courses!
