All nationally recognised and regulated qualifications in Australia fall into a single comprehensive national qualifications framework. We call this system the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF). The AQF is a level-based system that ranges from Level 1 (lowest complexity) to Level 10 (highest complexity). The Levels refer to specific qualifications that we are more familiar with as shown below.

In some cases, the transition to a Bachelor degree includes some credits that can reduce the amount of study required to complete the Bachelor degree.
