


Qualifications Framework for the European Higher Education Area is
aimed at facilitating the correct understanding and
comparability of qualifications in the Higher Education systems
of each country.
A further aim of the Framework is to offer a comprehensive
overview of the European teaching and learning offer,
targeted at the students coming from all over the world
Each country committed to put together a National Qualifications
Framework - NQF which is compatible with the Qualifications
Framework for the European Higher Education Area.
Italian Qualifications Framework
for Higher Education 2/3





It is a tool, which describes the qualifications awarded by the
Italian Higher Education institutions, in terms of expected
competences and learning outcomes.
It is modelled on The Qualifications Framework for the European
Higher Education Area - QF for EHEA.
Make the Italian Higher Education system more transparent and
understandable
Enhance international mobility of Italian students and graduates
and facilitate their access to advanced-level studies
Facilitate employers’ understanding and appraisal of the
qualifications awarded by Italian Higher Education Institutions
