Purpose: The focus of this research is on the experience of Bahrain’s National Qualifications Framework (NQF) over the last decade and how it has related – and could relate – to the wider world. The three dimensions of this research are: (1) how the application of the framework can best facilitate recognition internationally and locally of the graduates of the kingdom’s universities and training institutions; (2) the key principles, standards and processes that enable such recognition; and (3) how the recognition can be sustained.

Methodology: A qualitative interpretivist case study method has been adopted.

Findings: The research identifies key challenges encountered by higher education and training institutions in implementing the NQF requirements and the impact of the implementation on learning and teaching processes.
Originality/value: The lessons learned in implementing national qualifications frameworks worldwide have been examined and highlighted in the interests of supporting and improving the Bahraini experience.
