Term Definition

Any higher education award (degree, diploma, or other type of formal certification) issued by a competent, registered authority attesting the successful completion of a course programme. It covers a wide variety of higher education awards at different levels and across different countries (e.g., the Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree, the Doctorate, etc.). A qualification is important in terms of what it signifies: competencies and range of knowledge and skills. Sometimes it is equivalent to a license to practice. It is often synonymous with credential.
