BUFDG e-learning and BUFDG Pro

Please note: we are currently reviewing the accessibility of our e-learning courses

The BUFDG e-learning platform offers a range of free and subscription-based e-learning modules, covering finance, procurement, tax, credit control, and more. All modules available to your HEI can be accessed by ALL staff within your institution (they are not limited to, or only relevant to, Finance staff).

You don't need a different username, password or any extra enrolment keys - if you have a BUFDG website account then you can access the 12 free courses. To access the additional modules, your institution will need to have a subscription to BUFDG Pro. (Email us to find out if your HEI has BUFDG Pro).

Which course(s)?  Use our interactive guide to help you decide which courses are suitable for your role  (or for your team members), and to find out more about each course. Publicise the interactive guide to staff outside of the Finance team as well, as it covers many of their roles too. And if you would like a description of ALL our e-learning courses in one document, then have a look at our BUFDG e-learning course summary  which gives a short synopsis of each course.  

E-learning completion reports.  Each institution can request access to the e-learning completion reports, enabling you to keep track of CPD within your team or institution. We automatically provide access to run the reports to each FD and Deputy FD (or equivalent), and can provide access to any of the following within your institution on request: the FD’s PA, the Head of Procurement, a nominated finance training colleague and/or a learning and development contact (who may sit in HR). To request access for any of these individuals, please contact Rachel or Amanda. Find out how to run the e-learning completion reports here.

BUFDG’s e-learning on your own VLE?

While all our modules can be accessed by any of your staff on the BUFDG e-learning platform*, if your HEI would like to host any of the individual BUFDG e-learning modules on its own Virtual Learning Environment then these are available to purchase separately. Please contact us if you are interested in this option.

*with access to some modules dependent on whether your HEI subscribes to BUFDG Pro
