WHAT IS A MICRO-CREDENTIAL?
A micro-credential is a small learning experience supported by transparent quality assurance procedures. Here you can find the official definition by the European Commission. You can also read the ENHANCE Micro-credentials Template here for more information.
Micro-credentials are an essential part of the ENHANCE educational offer. ENHANCE micro-credentials are flexible and attractive. Whether you are a Bachelor, Master, PhD or life-long learner you may find an ENHANCE micro-credential suitable for you.
ENHANCE micro-credentials are continuously under development in cooperation with industry partners, local governments, and non-profit organisations.
