Section 81 of the Malaysian Qualifications Agency Act 2007 (Act 679)
provides that the Agency shall establish and maintain a national
register known as the Malaysian Qualifications Register (MQR),
containing programmes, qualifications and higher education providers
accredited under the Act.
The MQR is the reference point for accredited programmes awarded by
higher education providers. These programmes or qualifications (i.e.
certificate, diploma, advanced diploma, or degree) must conform to the
Malaysian Qualifications Framework.
The objectives of the MQR are :
(i) to provide information on accredited programmes and
(ii) to enable stakeholders to know, understand and make comparison on the features of a qualification and
its relationship with other qualifications;
(iii) to facilitate the credit transfer process .
Contents of MQR
Currently, the information in the MQR are as follows:
(i) name and address of the higher education institution
(ii) application reference number
(iii) name of the qualification
(iv) field of the qualification
(v) validity period
(vi) qualification level and
(vii) credit requirements to graduate.
Additional information such as learning outcome statements of the
programme, admission criteria and other relevant information will be
uploaded from time to time.
MQR is one of the main features of MQF. It plays a significant role in
ensuring that accredited higher education qualifications are
registered and made available for reference to all stakeholders.
Higher education providers, both locally and foreign, may apply to
have their qualifications registered in the MQR provided that the
programme fulfill the standards and criteria set and are accredited.
The MQR also contains information on the credit requirements of each
qualification or programme, and thus facilitate the credit transfer
process from one level to another.
The information in the MQR can also be used for certification or
clarification regarding any registered qualification. Any interested
party may refer to the MQR in order to obtain verification on the
status of any qualification. An extract from the MQR is available upon
DISCLAIMER: The Malaysian Government and
the Malaysian Qualifications Agency shall not be liable for any loss or
damage howsoever arising from the use of any information contained herein.
