During the development and implementation of the National Qualifications Framework for Higher Education of Armenia (NQFA) there was a necessity for proper definition and clear explanation of the main concepts and terms relating the NQFA. This glossary aims to solve the mentioned problem which includes the main concepts relating the NQFA and their interpretations. It is designed to make those concepts as conceivable as possible to the teaching and administrative staffs of HEIs, relevant state and public bodies and other NQFA stakeholders.

The glossary contains not only the terms used in the NQFA descriptors but also those which are not included in it, although directly relate to its application.
