Qualifications Frameworks in the European Higher Education Area (QF-EHEA) are frameworks describing the higher education qualifications of countries participating in the Bologna Process. National Qualifications Frameworks (NQFs) provide a mapping between higher education qualifications and an overarching framework, allowing the cross-comparison of qualifications from different countries.WEB,weblink Qualifications Frameworks in the EHEA, EHEA, 29 May 2016, The overarching framework was adopted in May 2005 at a meeting of education ministers of the 48 participating countries. It consists of three cycles, approximately equivalent to bachelor's, master's and research doctorates (PhD-equivalent) degrees in the Anglophone world (note that US first professional degrees such as MD and JD are not PhD-equivalent, even though they are titled "doctorates"). A "short cycle" is also recognised within the first cycle, equivalent to British foundation degrees (US associate degrees).WEB,weblink ECTS Users' Guide, European Commission, 29 May 2016, WEB,weblink Overarching framework of qualifications of the EHEA, EHEA, WEB,weblink Structure of U.S. Education, US Department of Education, 29 May 2016, WEB,weblink European Higher Education Area and Bologna Process, British Council, 29 May 2016,
