Short Courses:

If you’re applying for a short course, check the course page for dates and organise your Unique Student Identifier (USI). Find a direct link to apply in minutes from your course page or via our online application portal.


Find the micro-credential course you’d like to apply for and add it to your shopping cart on the course page or browse on the Be Different learning platform. You can purchase more than one course in a single transaction. Once you have all the micro-credentials you wish to purchase, you will be directed to the payment gateway and asked to authenticate your account on our Be Different platform.

  • If you are an existing student registered on the Be Different platform, use your previously registered login details to process the payment for your application.
  • If you are a new student, please select the option ‘Don’t have an account? Sign up now’ and follow the prompts to create a new account.

After successful authentication you will be redirected to a secure payment gateway to add your payment details and complete the transaction.

Following successful payment, you will automatically be redirected to the course in the Be Different platform and can find your micro-credential courses ready to start on your dashboard.
