Further information on the EQF is available at the Learning Opportunities and Qualifications in Europe Portal. This is a joint European Union Portal on learning opportunities and qualifications. The qualifications portal provides information on the EQF, NQFs and how they compare as well as information on qualifications in Europe with the facility to search by subject field, level of education or country. The learning opportunities portal provides information and links on opportunities to learn or study in another EU country with the facility to search by subject field, level of education or country.
Most European countries plan to have completed the process to link their national qualifications systems to EQF levels by end 2015. The results of this linking (or ‘referencing’) process are available on the qualifications Portal under Compare National Qualifications Frameworks. The next stage of development for the Portal will be to link national framework qualifications databases to the portal to provide a further level of details about the qualifications contained in each national framework.
