As of September 2019, Malta Further and Higher Education Authority (MFHEA, https://mfhea.mt/) (previously the National Commission for Further and Higher Education (NCFHE)) has licensed Woolf as a Higher Education Institution with license number 2019-015. This license is recognized within the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) and allows for transportability of higher education credits and degrees within the European Union. Malta is a member of the Bologna Process and the European Higher Education Area (EHEA). Programs with ECTS accreditation via Woolf are specifically designated as such. In Europe, Woolf is a Higher Education Institution and is not licensed as a “university,” which is a specially reserved term. As a licenced Higher Education Institution, Woolf is able to offer bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees with the same status as issued by a “university.”
