What are the requirements to sign up?


All affiliates are welcomed to apply we do look at the following 3 key criteria to evaluate your affiliate application:

  1. A list of followers: whether it is an email list, social media following on fanbase, we look to work with affiliates who are keen to share about Udemy with their audiences.
  2. Consistent traffic: we look at your traffic using and other search engines to understand the traffic on your website. Having a website is a must for now or at least a social media page active (such as a fan page, twitter or other). Please list the website or online channel you will use to promote our products
  3. Site Theme: With over thousands of courses, chances are we have a Udemy course on the topic of your site. We look at a fit in audiences as well to evaluate your application


Potential affiliates are evaluated based on criteria such as type of site, site quality, site content, variety of site content and items promoted, brand identity, and alignment with Udemy's brand.


During the application process, potential affiliates may be asked to share additional information about any of the listed criteria.

For now we don't welcome any sites who solely talk about Udemy as well as paid advertising affiliates.

    Great. I guess I won't be recommending any of your courses then, since I don't "meet your criteria."
