RCSI educational awards and the National Framework of Qualifications (NFQ)

During the 2011-2012 period, the QEO is working with the Medicine & Health Sciences Board and the Surgical & Postgraduate Faculties Board to develop a database of all educational awards made by RCSI, both degree and professional awards (Memberships & Fellowships), containing the key parameters necessary to link them to the award levels comprising the National Framework of Qualifications (NFQ).

Once complete, this database will form the basis for discussions with the National Qualifications Authority of Ireland to formalise these linkages.
