An alternative term for a ‘module’. Sometimes the term ‘module’ is used for a component of learning and teaching and ‘unit’ for a component of a qualification.

Units are a set of learning outcomes (knowledge, skills and/or competences) which constitute a coherent part of a qualification. A unit can be the smallest part of a qualification that can be assessed, transferred, validated and, possibly, certified (such as in relation to ECVET). A unit can be specific to a single qualification or common to several qualifications.
