  • Know your Human Rights online course
    At the moment, the Know Your Human Rights course is available in English, Urdu and Azerbaijani but Google Translate is available on each page of the website.  Their translations are not the best and it would be good to use an online dictionary for English plus your own language to check anything that doesn’t seem right.
  • Youth for Human Rights course for secondary schools
    This course is for teachers and has lesson plans booklets and videos. It is available in English, plus Arabic, Turkish, Urdu, Farsi and Kurdish Sorani.
  • Human Rights for Younger Children
    This course is being prepared.

We recommend that you study the courses somewhere quiet so that you can concentrate and get the most out of the rich, helpful information it contains. As we point out in the Introduction, never go past a word you don’t understand; always look the word up in a paper or online dictionary. If the material becomes difficult to understand, go back and look for a word you may not know.

If you’ve got to the end of your course but your completion is less than 100%, the download button for your certificate won’t appear, so you will need to check the course sections menu to find any that aren’t yet marked as complete (those you have finished will have a green tick next to them). As you progress through the course you will see the progress bar and a percentage figure. You will see that the percentage changes to 100% when you complete the course.

The course is set up so you automatically move on to the next section when you have completed each section of achieved 100% on the test you are doing.

Simply finish the course and you will be taken to a page with a download link to your certificate. You can also access this link via the ‘Your Progress’ page, as long as you have completed 100% of the course.
