    Would doing courses on FutureLearn improve the chances of getting into uni? My friend and I are thinking of doing a few courses that are related to our chosen degree so we can mention it in our personal statement

    You really shouldn't be doing things 'so you can mention it in your personal statement'. If you've got an interest in the course and you think you could get something out of it then I would definitely encourage you to take it and if you found it inspiring, mention it on your personal statement. But take it out of interest, not for your UCAS application.
