National Framework of Qualifications (NFQ)


The Irish National Framework of Qualifications was launched in 2003 as an infrastructure by which all learning and academic achievements can be related to each other in a meaningful and organised fashion. The various kinds of qualifications and awards included in the NFQ are organised based on the skills, competency and level of knowledge required to achieve them. Quality and Qualifications Ireland (QQI) has responsibility to maintain, support and develop the NFQ as well as facilitating the recognition of non-Irish qualifications. As every NFQ award is quality assured, international learners can be assured that their qualifications will be recognised around the world.

ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System)

The European Cedit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) is a student-centred system based on student workload. ECTS was introduced in Trinity College Dublin and applies to all undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. ECTS credits represent the student workload required to achieve the desired outcomes of modules and programmes. Each year of full-time undergraduate study carries 60 credits. All full year Erasmus/Visiting students are required to lake a minimum of 45 ECTS. One semester students are expected to take 20-30 ECTS. Credit values for modules at Trinity will vary, but usually will have a 5, 10 or 15 ECTS value depending on the length of the module and the number of hours.
