Micro-Credential Programmes

Our Micro-Credentials are bite-sized modules, with opportunities to specialise in fields of study that interest you.

What is a Micro-Credential?

 Micro-Credentials are designed with a specific learning path and involve studying a programme at your own pace in a mainly online environment.
In most cases, students pursue Micro-Credentials because they offer the flexibility for you to study at your own pace allowing you to complete a programme in your own time.

Why choose a Micro-Credential


A micro-credential course is shorter than your usual university course. It could be a small part of an accredited programme or a stand-alone course.


Candidates are required to demonstrate their development of knowledge, skills, and competencies in a specified targeted area. In doing so, candidates will be developing clear evidence or artefacts of learning “in-action”.


Upon successful completion of a micro-credential course, candidates are awarded with a digital certification. This could be in the form of a digital badge or a certificate.


Micro-credentials can be stacked towards a larger unit of competencies developed via a range of pathways. It means that a candidate may complete various micro-credential courses offered by one or many providers based on their own needs and at their own pace, then use them to apply for credit towards an accredited qualification.


One interesting thing to note:
Alongside micro-credentials, a candidate’s prior skills and work or life experiences may also be taken as credits towards an accredited program. This means that it is possible to use recognition of informal and non-formal learning, like your work experiences or completion of a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) to seek qualifications.
