    No
    No
    Maybe

    Futurelearn courses can be awarded a certificate of completion/achievement - but you have to pay. SOME will result in the award of academic credit (if you pay) https://about.futurelearn.com/about/faq?category=credit - that's a formal qualification and will normally be at the equivalent to PART of year 1 of a university degree.

    So on my UCAS qualifications I can't put it there? Only on personal statement?

    If you pay for a certificate you can add it to education. Otherwise you can just talk in your PS about topics or work that you found interesting/challenging/surprising/satisfying
