Maldives National Qualifications Framework (MNQF)

Today, the Maldivian post-secondary education sector is growing rapidly, with an increasing number of private providers entering the sector to meet the demand. Emerging from this growingimportance of post-secondary education is the concomitant requirement to assure the quality of qualifications awarded in testimony of educational attainments. Thus, the Maldives NationalQualifications Framework (MNQF) is designed to:
  • Facilitate the development of a quality assurance mechanism for the post-secondary education sector.
  • Provide a framework for recognition of qualifications offered in the Maldives and abroad.
MNQF provides a comprehensive and coherent national framework that facilitates quality improvement, quality assurance, and private sector participation in post- secondary education. MNQF also ensures that students, employers, education providers and the community at large easily understand the learning outcomes involved in various qualifications.
