References to qualification pathways and knowledge mixes are intended to assist institutions in matching their qualification offerings with their mission, goals, priorities and contexts. They do not imply any kind of categorisation of institutional types, nor do they in themselves place limitations on the qualifications that an institution may offer, as long as it is able to meet the standards for those qualifications. It is not the function of qualification standards to determine the PQM of an institution, or how it may vary from time to time. An expert community of practice will determine the particular conceptual-contextual blend that a qualification type should have, and institutions should decide (subject to PQM approval) what qualification types they are best able to offer, and in what fields of study.
