Responding to the needs of adult learners who require flexible approaches to upskilling & accreditation, the University has embarked on a national project in the area of micro-credentials. 

“University of Galway is one of seven universities working on the MicroCreds innovative national project, with the goal of developing short learning courses, to upskill and reskill the labour force.” explains Janice Mulvany Glennon, Micro-credentials Project Lead.

Acknowledging the role that work & life experience plays in contributing to learning and the development of skills, the University has been actively involved with industry and adult learners in recognising the prior learning which students bring to their studies. Suzanne Golden, RPL Project Lead at the University of Galway, explains that the “Recognition of Prior Learning is an essential component of the University’s approach to widening access to qualifications and supporting lifelong learning.”
