What is EQF It is a tool that allows people to compare the different qualifications, diplomas, certificates, … issued by various European countries. Using learning outcomes as a common reference point, the Framework will facilitate comparison and transfer of qualifications between countries, systems and institutions and will therefore be relevant to a wide range of users at European as well as at national level. Each country must place their titles within that grid. di 7
