Hi, 

There are mainly two types of courses:

  • One under a Specialization or Professional Certificate and
  • Others are independent courses.

For Specialization/Professional Certificate

There are usually 4-8 courses under a specialization. If you subscribe for a specialization and if you complete some courses within 7 days of free trial, you earn certificates for those courses under that specialization. You can download the certificates even after your trial period ends. But you need to cancel the subscription in “My Purchases” page before the trial period ends to avoid any charges.

I recommend to complete as many courses as possible within trial period. I have even completed a whole specialization within the trial period.

For independent Courses 

For this you need to pay for the certificate regardless of trial period. You can access the course materials and videos for free if you “audit” the course. In such case you would not receive any certificate.

 

There are some other forms of courses and degrees as well but most of them are paid.

 

P.S. You can subscribe to as many Specialization courses as you want. I am accessing free coursera materials for two months
