The free upgrade gives learners unlimited access once the course starts, not before. So, you will be able to start the course from the start date and take as long as you like over the material (i.e. you won't have to study it over 7 weeks - that's just a suggestion). All you must do is email Lesley-Anne at Fitwise, Lesley-Anne will then log into Futurelearn, add you to the free enrolment and a link will be sent to you to register via Futurelearn.
