Course description

The University of Galway offers a wide range of micro-credentials in Semester 1 and Semester 2 each year. Micro-credentials are short, accredited modules for professional development and are innovative in their approach to life-long learning.

They are designed to fit around your life and are quality-assured and accredited by leading Irish universities. They are offered online, face-to-face, or through blended learning (a combination of both). They are taught by leading academics and are created in collaboration with Industry. Micro-credentials can be taken as standalone modules or could be stacked into larger qualifications over time.

So whether you want to upskill, reskill, or discover a skill you never knew you had, Micro-credentials are a great way to stay ahead.
