Micro-credentials are one way in which the University of Saskatchewan is responding to changing societal, economic, and social needs. Through the provision of quick, flexible, and targeted education for in-demand skills/competencies, we strive to be the university the world needs.

With authentically assessed upskilling opportunities, you will develop and refine your skills through lessons, practice and coaching, and will have the opportunity to apply what you learn in situations where the skills would typically be used. 

Two micro-credentials will be offered in 2022 as part of a pilot program. Read more about the launch of USask micro-credentials. You can learn more about these pilot credentials below.
