The Mind Lab's short courses

At The Mind Lab, we believe learning is for life. 

That’s why we offer a range of NZQA accredited micro-credentials, designed to be compact and specific, helping you deep dive into an area you’re passionate about – in a short amount of time.

What is a micro-credential?

A micro-credential is a compact package of high quality learning that is delivered in a manageable and practical format. Think of them like a ‘crash course’ on the future – bringing you up to speed on what matters today but also what’s critical for a thriving future. 

Delivered online, with a combination of self-directed learning and live-online weekly sessions – these courses are accessible from wherever you are.

In an exciting leading-edge change, approved Level 8 micro-credentials across The Mind Lab and Tech Futures Lab can now stack together to build into something bigger. Find out how it works.
