UNSW Law recognises that there is more that is needed in the modern world rather than just knowledge. Professionals and non-professionals need to acquire and have recognised knowledge and skills that employers seek in a rapidly changing workforce.

Micro-credentials complement university qualifications; they are certifications and badges that allow individuals to demonstrate that they have obtained certain skills and applied knowledge through short courses. These credentials are useful to employees, employers and clients in their immediate recognition of an individual’s skills.

There are several micro-credentials currently being offered to in-house clients and will be made public in the future.
