How does the SCQF work outside Scotland?
The SCQF also helps to illustrate the relationships between Scottish qualifications and those in the rest of the UK, Europe and beyond, which can clarify opportunities for international progression routes and credit transfer. The SCQF has been referenced to the European Qualifications Framework (EQF), meaning that there is now an easy way to compare the level of qualifications of the countries in Europe who have developed their own National Qualifications Framework. to see how this works click in the table(LHS) produced by the Quality Assurance agency for Higher Education www.qaa.ac.uk
