East African Qualifications Framework for Higher Education (EAQFHE)

The EAQFHE is a regional qualifications framework proposed for the East African Community Partner States. It constitutes a key element for harmonization of higher education systems in its member states: Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania, and Uganda. Its aims are

  • to become an instrument for the development and classification of qualifications according to a set of criteria for levels of learning and skills achieved by a learner, regardless of a mode of learning.
  • to integrate education and training into a unified structure of recognized qualifications.
  • to ensure effective comparability of qualifications and credit across the national or regional education training systems and facilitate the recognition of those qualifications within and outside the country’s or region’s borders.
It is developed through a participatory process including different HE stakeholders (ministries, commissions/councils for HE, professional bodies, private sector etc).
