UK NARIC signs Memorandum of Cooperation with Malaysian Qualifications Agency

UK NARIC and the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA) are further strengthening their relationship with the signing on 25 May of a new Memorandum of Cooperation.

At the Malaysian High Commission in London, the agreement was signed by the CEO of MQA, Dato’ Prof Dr Rujhan Mustafa and the Head of Stakeholder Management at UK NARIC, Tim Buttress, representing Dr Cloud Bai-Yun, the CEO of UK NARIC.

The signing was witnessed by the Secretary General of the Ministry of Higher Education, Malaysia, HE Tan Sri Dr Noorul Ainur Mohd Nur and the High Commissioner of Malaysia to the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland, HE Dato’ Ahmad Rasidi bin Hazizi.

The signing of this document formally establishes a new phase of cooperation between the two organisations. This is part of UK NARIC’s accelerated effort to consolidate key partnerships with global players from the SEA and Gulf regions.

Noorul Ainur said in her remarks that she hopes this cooperation will allow MQA to strengthen its qualification referencing capacity, to support the nearly completed revised Malaysia Qualifications Framework, and the Agency’s endeavour to reference the Framework with the ASEAN Qualification Reference Framework in the near future.

The MoC aims to foster and promote technical cooperation that will be of benefit through, amongst others, exchange of information, staff and experts. Both agencies have also explicitly expressed their commitments in exploring joint activities and research, as well as areas of mutual benefit in a range of fields, including qualifications assessment, equivalency and referencing.
