Micro-credential Course Fees

Each micro-credential has an associated fee which must be paid as part of the registration process. In some cases, there are differentiated fees based on EU and non-EU status.

Please find the list of fees for micro-credentials below.

Employer Funding

In some cases, your employer may wish to pay your fees to enable you to undertake a micro-credential. If this is the case you will need to find out if they are already set up as an approved Trinity sponsor.

If they are not then they can still sponsor you. You can find out more information about this on our Academic Registry Sponsorship page below. 

Your development is worth investing in. See some tips below on explaining the value to your employer.

Trinity Micro-credentials qualify for funding between 50-80% for eligible learners under the new HCI Pillar 3 Micro-credential Learner Fee Subsidy. It is funded by The Higher Education Authority (HEA) and the Department of Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science.
