What are Shorter Form Credentials?

A Shorter Form Credential (SFC) is a distinct unit of study with academically assessed learning outcomes, generally offered outside an award program, and usually completed in a short time frame (i.e. months rather than years). 

SFCs may be designed for upskilling, recognition of prior learning, entry pathways, and/or to provide students with a point of differentiation. They are transferrable, recognised globally, and flexible in that they can be taken outside our standard timetable. In an age where upskilling/reskilling will be necessary in order to take on jobs that don’t yet exist, SFCs will be essential.
