  1. How does the EQF work?

    Why the EQF? The free movement of people in Europe is one of the most important goals of the EU.

    Higher education is organized at public and private universities and independent higher education institutions. Higher education is organized in three Bologna cycles. In this context, the first cycle features higher professional and academic undergraduate bachelor study programmes; the second cycle features postgraduate master’s study programmes (cycle or integrated), and the third cycle includes doctoral study programmes. Tertiary education study programmes last from 2 to 6 years. Credit points – ECTS are awarded according to student workload. One full-time study year corresponds to 60 ECTS, whereby 1 ECTS equals 25–30 hours of work or a total of 1,500 to 1,800 hours of work per year. Tertiary education entry requirements are specified by law and study programmes. Commonly, candidates shall have a certificate of general matura. The general matura gives students access to any short-cycle higher vocational or bachelor or integrated master’s higher education study programme. In case, the number of applicants exceeds the capacity, candidates with better overall grade in the matura or vocational matura and the overall grades in years 3 and 4 or grades of individual subjects in upper secondary education are selected. Candidates' success from prior studies is also taken into account even when they enrol in masters' and doctoral study programmes.
