Latvian Qualifications Database

Latvian Qualifications Database (LQD) is a unique information system containing summary of data about qualifications referenced to the Latvian Qualifications Framework (LQF).

LQF is a system, where learning outcomes achieved during periods of learning are described in eight levels. Qualifications referenced in the LQF cover certificates obtained in formal education starting from basic education to doctoral studies. For purposes of comparability of Latvian qualifications, the LQF has been referenced to the European Qualifications Framework (EQF).

The Database covers qualifications which can be acquired when completing accredited education programmes in accredited education institutions; therefore, these qualifications are recognised by the state.
