What is a micro-credential?

A micro-credential is a module that takes place over the course of one semester. Micro-credentials are made to expand the accessibility of higher education, so they are inherently flexible. Currently, our law micro-credentials classes of up to two hours per week. Most micro-credentials include online learning options, while some are hybrid and allow the student to attend in person.

Micro-credentials give you the opportunity to upskill in highly-specialised areas with short, accredited, flexible, industry-aligned courses. Micro-credentials aim to address many of the barriers to life-long learning and enable learners to successfully balance further study with work and other commitments. When you complete a UCD micro-credential you acquire university credit (ECTS), which can be stacked towards larger UCD award, such as a UCD Masters.

Micro-credentials are ideal for those looking to take the next step in their career or make a slight career shift without committing to a long-term or full-time degree programme.

All UCD Sutherland School of Law micro-credentials are level 9 accredited courses.
