QUALIFICATION FRAMEWORK
INTEGRATED QUALIFICATION FRAMEWORK (IQF) 
The Integrated Qualification Framework (IQF) is based on and aligned to the UK-RQF (Regulated Qualifications Framework) which provides flexible and affordable solutions to obtaining a under-graduate, graduate and post-graduate qualification. The Integrated Qualification Framework (IQF), in addition to the UK-RQF, SQF (Scottish Qualification Framework) and EQF (European Quality Framework) curriculum requirement, also combines typical South African and USA curriculum components within an online learning framework to equip the student via online studies at graduate and post-graduate level to meet the requirements of international employment agencies and/or academic institutions. The Integrated Qualification Framework (IQF) followed by EduCatis covers the following spectrum of qualifications levels:

BASIC SKILLS LEVEL 
Qualifications at this level (IQF-Level 3) (Cert.Skill) provide the student/learner with basic business skills which will improve performance in the workplace as well as the entrepreneurial environment. The programme is delivered via an online/blended learning tuition model and follows an international generic content approach. A certificate of completion is awarded to the student as proof that the specific course has been completed via the Online Learner Management System and that the required competency test has been passed. The Cert.Skill does not carry any accreditation/certification value towards any other qualification and is intended as proof of specialized competency at a skills level. The Teaching-English-as-Language (TEFL) Cambridge Certificate also sits at the IQF-Level 3 and can be completed online via the TEFL-Cambridge Online Learner Management System.
BRIDGING LEVEL 
 Qualifications at this level (IQF-Level 3) (BDip.Skill/EDip.Skill) introduce the student to subject knowledge and learning skills in preparation for undergraduate studies as part of a Bachelor (BBA) or Master (MBA) online academic study pathway. The BDip.Skill/EDip.Skill is awarded to the student as proof that the prescribed course content has been studied via the Online Learner Management System and that the required competency tests have been passed with an average pass rate of at least 60%. Completion of the BDip.Skill/ EDip.Skill is a prerequisite to register for the EduCatis Graduate Programme (EGP) at Bachelor/Masters level and does not carry any accreditation/certification value towards any other qualification that falls outside the EGP.


UNDERGRADUATE LEVEL Qualifications at this level are aligned to the 1st Year (IQF-Level 4), 2nd Year (IQF-Level 5) and 3rd Year (IQF-Level 6 & 6+) respectively of a three year UK-Bachelor's Degree. Each level consists of 120 credits and is delivered via the EduNet Online Learner Management System (EOLMS) followed by a BBA-Top-Up (60 Credits) at a UK/USA/AUS/Swiss or accredited international university either via blended-learning or an online learner management system. A Dip.Man, HDip.Man and GDip.Man certificate is awarded to the student as proof that the prescribed course content relevant to the specific academic year has been studied via the Online Learner Management System and that the required competency tests have been passed with an average pass rate of at least 60%. The DipMan, HDip.Man and GDip.Man is thus intended as academic markers indicating that the curriculum requirements of a specific academic year (Bachelor Year 1, 2 & 3), which forms part of the Educatis Graduate Programme (EGP) has been met and does not carry any accreditation/certification credits towards any other qualification that falls outside the EGP.
POST-GRADUATE LEVEL Qualifications at this level are aligned to the 4th academic year (IQF-Level 7 & 7+) of a UK-based Masters (MBA) Degree. The level requires completion 120 credits and is delivered via the EduNet Online Learner Management System (EOLMS) followed by a MBA Top-Up at a UK/USA/AUS/Swiss or accredited international university either via blended-learning or an online learner management system. A PGDip.Man certificate is awarded to the student as proof that the prescribed course content relevant has been studied via the Online Learner Management System and that the required competency assessment via test, assignments and examinations have been passed with an average pass rate of at least 60%. The PGDip.Man is thus intended as academic marker indicating that the curriculum requirements of the IQF-Level 7 academic year has been met and that the student qualifies to proceed with the MBA Top-Up phase at a university/business school accredited on the UK-Ofqual/BAC system.
