What are MicroCreds and where have they come from?

Micro-credentials are small, accredited courses designed to meet the demands of learners, enterprise and organisations, created by Irish Universities Association (IUA) partner universities in consultation with enterprise. Micro-credentials provide learning opportunities which offer a highly flexible, bite sized and accessible way of upskilling and reskilling. 

Our micro-credentials are credit bearing, research-led and quality assured by leading Irish universities. Learners may choose to undertake an individual micro-credential or continue on studying, advancing their skills and knowledge over time. Some micro-credentials offer pathways, allowing learners the opportunity to stack micro-credentials into a larger credential or award.
