MicroCreds at UL

MicroCreds is a HCI funded, €12.3 million project led by the IUA to empower lifelong learning in Ireland through short courses known as MicroCreds. UL is working collaboratively with other universities in Ireland to standardise MircoCreds nationally so that there is consistent and transferrable accreditaiton recognition across the short courses offered. 

UL has been upskilling professional learners through short modules for some time. In fact, short module learner uptake has increased by 175% in recent years. Given the impact of short modules (or micro-credentials) on enhancing enterprise talent, UL has joined a national initiative to help build a framework, strengthen awareness and increase the national offering of micro-credentials in areas of noted skill gaps.
