This article reports on the findings of a research project which aimed at determining what the key implications of the Higher Education Qualifications Framework would be for the curricula of Universities of Technology. The key problems which were investigated were the seeming lack of understanding of the exact implications of the Higher Education Qualifications Framework and the apparent hesitance on the part of Universities of Technology to start with the implementation process. By means of a systematic literature review and document analysis the researcher attempted to provide some frame of reference on the implications of the Higher Education Qualifications Framework for the programmes and curricula of Universities of Technology. The research aimed to start off a process of addressing the gap in available literature on the South African Higher Education Qualifications Framework. The research yielded some clear curricular implications of the framework and provided some guidelines for implementation.
