MICROBOL: State of Micro-credentials in the European Higher Education Area

The majority of countries have implemented policies related to the recognition of micro-credentials, but many countries do not have specific policies. As for the purpose of recognition, most of the countries recognize micro-credentials with the aim of increasing learners’ competitiveness in the labor market, both for academic purposes and for further study (also in the form of recognition of credits and of prior learning).

In almost half of the countries, learners can accumulate micro-credentials to build up to a degree program (but in some cases, stackability is not possible towards a full degree). The data shows that several countries, but still not the majority of respondents, do not recognize micro-credentials from providers other than higher education institutions.
