 Evaluation of Foreign Qualifications

The Evaluation or recognition of foreign qualifications is a process intended to inform various stakeholders who might not be familiar with levels of qualifications offered in foreign countries. Therefore, it is the function of the SQA to establish the levels of the foreign certificates by positioning them on the National Qualifications Map according to their level descriptors and the notional hours as stipulated in the regulations of the National Qualifications Framework (NQF).

It is after the qualifications are evaluated and validated that the qualifications holders will have the right to be considered for admission to further/higher education and/or for employment activities in the country.
