The Malta Qualifications Recognition Information Centre (MQRIC) forms part of the Maltese government's further and higher education authority (MFHEA). Their job is to check and approve different types of learning, like school or work training, against the Malta Qualifications Framework (MQF). Your MQRIC statement helps to show that the things you've learned, whether in Malta or another country, match up with the standards in Malta and Europe. For more information about what MQF levels are, and what they mean, you can read our post here.
There are many reasons you might need a document that shows your qualifications are approved. Some examples could be: you want to further your studies, you're trying to get a new job or a promotion, you need a special allowance for your qualifications or applying for a funding scheme like the the Malta Get Qualified Scheme.
