Danish Qualifications Framework for Higher Education

A special qualifications framework for higher education has been implemented in Danish accreditation legislation.

Denmark has had a national Qualifications Framework for Higher Education since 2003. The framework has been widely implemented and used by institutions of higher education.

The qualifications framework has been revised on the basis of evaluations of the knowledge and practical experience gained by the higher education institutions having implemented the framework.

Approved by the Minister of Education and the Minister for Science, Technology and Innovation, the present qualifications framework came into force on 1 July 2008. The qualifications framework has been implemented in Danish accreditation legislation.

The qualifications framework has been certified and found compatible and in alignment with the overarching framework of qualifications for the European Higher Education Area, the Bologna Framework. This means that, from 2010, Danish institutions can refer to a level in the Bologna Framework in the Diploma Supplement.
