The European Qualifications Framework (EQF) is a translation tool that helps communication and comparison between qualifications systems in Europe. Its eight common European reference levels are described in terms of learning outcomes: knowledge, skills and competences. This allows any national qualifications systems, national qualifications frameworks (NQFs) and qualifications in Europe to relate to the EQF levels. Learners, graduates, providers and employers can use these levels to understand and compare qualifications awarded in different countries and by different education and training systems.

  1. Master of Science in de bio-ingenieurswetenschappen land- en bosbeheer

    Leerresultaten 3-14 zijn in een eerste fase uitgeschreven op het algemene ‘familie’ niveau van de master ‘ingenieur’. De overige leerresultaten zijn in een tweede fase uitgeschreven als een verbijzondering van de algemene leerresultaten: zij zijn enkel van toepassing op de Master of Science in Land- en bosbeheer en op de Master of Tropical Natural Resources Management en profileren deze opleidingen ten aanzien van andere masters binnen de opleiding bio-ingenieur én het ingenieursdomein in het algemeen. De leerresultaten van deze masteropleidingen bouwen voort op deze van de bachelor in de bio-ingenieurswetenschappen. 1. Het beheer van natuurlijk hulpbronnen kunnen plaatsen in zowel een productiecontext als een conserveringscontext. 2.
