Recognition of Microcredentials
There are two ways by which MCs can be recognised by HEPs for further studies.
- Credit Transfer
Courses or units from accredited programmes within the scope of the internal and external review of the programmes can be submitted to any HEP for evaluation. Credits granted is subject to the maximum credit transfer allowed under MQA Guidelines for Credit Transfer for MOOCs.
- Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL)
The APEL (C) guidelines permit nonformal and informal learning to be submitted to recognised APEL (C) centres for evaluation based on which HEPs are able to grant up to 30% of the credits of a programme.
- Lifelong learning
The HEPs must construct suitable short units, modules and courses on new knowledge, skills, technologies and attributes to equip the masses for the new economic challenges brought upon by the rapid and discontinuous changes of the present times.
The shorter and focused MCs allows the HEPS to tap into a different market of students and workers who prefer a faster option to acquire the required competency to enter the labour market and pursue further credentials for career development as an alternative to traditional degree programmes.
With the rapidly improving internet access and broadband speed, MCs offer the people near and far a greater access to higher education opportunities and industry-focused learning.
People can accumulate MCs and credits based on their needs and at their own pace from a HEP of their choice for credit transfer based on a credible and transparent outcomes-based process subject to existing policies.
- Recognition of Non-Formal Learning
MQF describes the recognition of all forms of learning in seeking entry into academic qualifications. Therefore, MCs, which testify to successful attainment of specified outcomes, can be considered through the APEL C process for credits in academic programmes offered by HEPs.
