The Higher Education Qualifications Sub-Framework (HEQSF)

Published by the Council on Higher Education (CHE) in 2013

Characteristics of the framework

The HEQSF is designed to:

  • Be sufficiently flexible to accommodate different types of higher education institutions and enable institutions to pursue their own curriculum goals with creativity and innovation;
  • Facilitate the education of graduates who will contribute to the social, cultural and economic development of South Africa and participate successfully in the global economy and knowledge society;
  • Enhance the development of a vibrant, high quality research system;
  • Be compatible with international qualifications frameworks in order to ensure international recognition and comparability of standards;
  • Be suitably flexible to accommodate the development of new qualification types and specialisations as the need arises;
  • Be simple, clear, easy to understand and user-friendly for the higher education system and its clients;
  • Facilitate qualification articulation across the higher education system and assist learners to identify potential progression routes, particularly in the context of lifelong learning; and
  • Articulate with the rest of the NQF.
