The Finnish National Qualifications Framework (NQF) – A comprehensive and concise description

The Finnish National Framework for Qualifications and Other Competence Modules (FiNQF) was formally adopted on 1 March 2017. On this date, the Law and the Decree governing the FiNQF entered force, which marked a formal culmination of the work towards a national qualifications framework. In fact, much had been done before; the Government committed to the preparation of a national qualifications framework in 2008 and since then Finland has been actively involved in international discussions and co‐operation on qualification frameworks.

This report describes the Finnish National Framework for Qualifications and Other Competence Modules (FiNQF) and explains how the FiNQF is referenced to the European Qualifications Framework for Lifelong Learning (EQF) and self‐certified to the Framework for Qualifications of the European Higher Education Area, the EHEA Qualifications Framework.

The report is intended as a single comprehensive, yet concise, description of the referencing and self‐certification processes. It is meant for those interested in the Finnish national qualifications framework and includes descriptions of the qualifications referenced to the FiNQF in 2017.
