National Commission for Further & Higher Education Logo

ECDL Malta and the Malta Qualifications Recognition Information Centre have agreed that the following certifications are classified under the eight-level system as detailed in Legal Notice 347/2005 and the level descriptors of the European Qualifications Framework for Lifelong Learning (EQF) and the Malta Qualifications Framework (MQF).

The National Commission for Further & Higher Education deems the ECDL Base Certificate to be at Level 2 of the Malta Qualifications Framework and of the European Qualifications for Framework for Lifelong Learning.

The National Commission for Further & Higher Education deems the ECDL Standard Certificate to be at Level 3 of the Malta Qualifications Framework and of the European Qualifications for Framework for Lifelong Learning.

The National Commission for Further & Higher Education deems the ECDL Expert Certificate to be at Level 4 of the Malta Qualifications Framework and of the European Qualifications for Framework for Lifelong Learning.

Note that:

  • Although the ECDL Certificate is rated at the same level (i.e. Level 3 of the MQF) as a Secondary Education Certificate/Ordinary Level Certificate, this does not mean that the ECDL certificate can be used as replacement for the Secondary Education Certificate/Ordinary Level Certificate.
  • Similarly, although the ECDL Expert Certificate is rated at the same level (i.e. Level 4 of the MQF) as an Advanced Level Certificate, this does not imply that candidates can use this as a replacement for an Advanced Level Certificate.
  • The Malta Qualifications Framework determines the exit points of qualifications. The entry requirements to programmes of study are at the discretion of the education and training providers.
