The Malaysian Qualifications Framework (MQF) is Malaysia's declaration about its qualifications and their quality in relation to its education system. MQF was first published in 2007 and its implementation was enforced in 2011. After 7 years of implementation, the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA) has revised MQF to ensure its relevancy/currency, according to dynamism of national and international higher education system. The revised version, MQF 2nd Edition is approved by the MQA Council Meeting in December 2017.
The revision mainly focused on restructuring and strengthening MQF learning outcomes; and integrating Skills, and Vocational and Technical sectors into one sector, i.e. Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) sector, whilst, the Higher Education sector was renamed as Academic sector.
