Get the Most from your AUT LinkedIn Learning Account

Did you know that all AUT students get a free LinkedIn Learning account?

LinkedIn Learning (formerly is a database of learning resources designed for a wide range of professionals. Its video courses have a particularly strong focus on software training, personal skills, and data analysis techniques.

Once you’ve logged in with your AUT email and password (more instructions here), you’ll have access to over 16,000 video courses on thousands of topics and in 7 languages.

Fortunately, we’ve done some of the legwork.

Here’s a selection of videos and training materials that are most suitable for PG researchers. Some refer to business practices, but many of the principles carry over well into our academic work.
