  • Visualising data and storytelling using Tableau.
  • Best practices and ethical considerations for working with data.

How will I learn?

Micro units allow you to study when it’s convenient for you. While you’ll need to start and finish the unit at the same time as fellow participants, it’s up to you how and when you complete the content in between. As a general guide, we recommend you allocate 4-6 hours to your micro unit each week.

We’ve recruited industry experts as our dedicated Online Learning Coaches. They’ll guide you through the course and give you industry insights you can’t find anywhere else. You’ll cover case studies and stories from real business situations, and extra content will be available if you want to explore topics in more depth. In your final assessment, you’ll apply what you’ve learned in a professional context that’s relevant to you.

What will I get?

You may want to do a micro unit for general learning without the pressure of assessment. That’s fine – micro units are all about making study work for you.

  • If you complete the course material and pass the final assessment, you’ll receive a Certificate of Completion recognising the skills and knowledge you’ve gained.
  • If you complete enough of the course material, but not the final assessment, you’ll still receive a Certificate of Participation.
