A dynamic and innovative solution to fast-paced changing needs of industry and society. Micro-credentials reinforce Trinity’s commitment to quality and agility in Higher Education


Micro-credentials are short, accredited flexible modules of learning that are designed to future proof professional learners for the new world of work. Trinity College Dublin is committed to next generation teaching and learning and we are delighted that the Higher Education Authority has recognised this commitment through funding the micro-credential pilot programme under the Human Capital Initiative 2020-2024. 

Micro-credential learning will focus on the development of professional skills that will ensure learners are equipped to respond to rapid technological, economic and societal change. These micro-credentials are the product of a dynamic partnership with enterprise and public sector employers. They advance learning in areas of emerging skill needs and future proof our professionals for the evolving world of work.

Trintiy micro-credentials will be offered through a variety of online, blended and on-site learning that leads to accreditation in the form of ECTS and are CPD approved by Engineers Ireland. The modules are delivered by experts in their field of study, ensuring the high standard of education and quality assurance that Trinity is renowned for. We are delighted that the School of Engineering is one of the first schools in Trinity to offer this exciting and innovative learning opportunity.

Please Note, for those Micro-credential Courses Starting in September, the Application Deadline is 12th August, 2023.
