A Recognition of Qualification, also known as an Equivalency is a determination by a competent authority that a particular programme of study or course has attained a comparable recognized standard.

 The purposes of determining equivalencies include facilitating: 

  1. Articulation arrangements between educational providers, and other issues related to the transfer of students to other educational institutions; and  
  2. Entry of graduates of the programmes into the workplace. 
  3. Determining the comparability of foreign qualifications to local awards in order to facilitate the free movement of skilled nationals.
