Learning outcomes

Describe what students should know, understand and be able to do upon the completion of a study programme. Learning outcomes are connected to the measurable level descriptors in the national and European qualification frameworks.


refers to the formally designated location of a programme in the Qualifications Framework of the European Higher Education Area. (e.g. first cycle or Bachelor's level.) They represent a series of sequential steps (a developmental continuum), expressed in terms of a range of generic outcomes, against which typical qualifications can be positioned. *Bologna Follow-Up Group, Framework for Qualifications of the European Higher Education Area, 2005, p. 30.
