The University of Tartu considers it important to offer flexible opportunities for adult learners to study at the university, as the changing labour market and ways of working require acquiring new skills now and then.
A micro-credential programme is a longer, comprehensive continuing education programme based on degree-study courses. The programme offers an opportunity to acquire an additional specialisation or specific competencies in a narrow field.
The volume of a UT micro-credential programme ranges from 12 to 30 ECTS. The programmes are designed with the volume and pace of study suitable for the adult learner in mind, so that they can generally be completed in one or two semesters. Participants in a micro-credential programme study alongside students, in block-mode or online format suitable for the working person. The programmes are provided for a fee. Micro-credential programmes are designed to enable participants to continue their studies in a degree programme, if they wish, and to get higher education or a new degree in the field. Participants completing the programme receive a continuing education certificate from the University of Tartu.
Micro-credential degrees are designed for learners with at least upper secondary education, but many programmes have additional admission requirements.
