Recognition of Diplomas
The Malta Qualifications Recognition Information Centre (MQRIC) is the competent body within the NCFHE that recognises qualifications against the Malta Qualifications Framework (MQF).
It provides recognition and comparability of both academic and vocational qualifications, using both the Malta Qualifications Framework (MQF) and the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) to provide recognition advice on both local and international qualifications. It also assists in the recognition of Maltese qualifications abroad. MQRIC is also the local official ENIC-NARIC centre in Malta and forms part of the ENIC-NARIC Network.
Recognition statements for qualifications may be required for various reasons, such as: to pursue further studies, applying for a job or a promotion, qualification allowance, tax rebate, scholarship schemes, a single permit/visa/citizenship with Jobsplus, amongst others. In order to further facilitate the recognition process, MQRIC has launched a new online system, funded through the ESF Project 1.227 'Making Quality Visible', whereby the recognition statement can be downloaded directly from our website. In view of this, MQRIC is no longer accepting applications face-to-face or via email.
