Microcredentials/Short Courses are validated by The Open University or Pearson (HN Flex).

They offer access to bite-sized chunks of learning that can help you develop knowledge and skills in a specific area.

The modules offered by University Centre Peterborough (UCP) are taken from full HE qualifications.

They can be used for CPD, to become familiar with HE studies or to progress onto a full programme at UCP and may be delivered face-to-face, online or a mix of both. These courses will run for 6 – 12 weeks.

Before the course starts:

  • Induction week occurs prior to the course starting. It covers the learning environment, VLE, student support, and key policies. These will be available online or in person.

What will you gain from the course?

  • Upon completion, a certificate will be awarded, this will enhance your CV and show industry relevance.
  • You will have an optional ‘Next Steps’ session post-course. You can discuss further micro-credentials, progression to full degree, and employability support. These are available online or in person.

Entry requirements and module combinations leading to a full award are available on our website.
