Comparability of qualifications

Last update : 22.02.2016


Extent to which it is possible to establish equivalence between the level and content of qualifications (certificates diplomas or titles) at
sectoral, regional, national or international levels.

Comment: comparability of qualifications improves individualsʼ employability and mobility. This term must not be confused with
"equivalence of qualifications" (which refers to the similarity of value of certificates or diplomas).
