Micro-credentials and Short Courses
A micro-credential certifies achievement of a coherent set of skills and knowledge; and is specified by a statement of purpose, learning outcomes, and strong evidence of need by industry, employers, iwi and/or the community. They are smaller than a qualification and focus on skill development opportunities not currently catered for in the regulated tertiary education system. Micro-credentials provide credit of between 5 and 40 points and they are standalone awards issued by the University of Canterbury. UC is currently focusing on developing a micro-credentials offering for 2021. Please take a look at the micro-credentials provisions.
