Higher Education:

From the Bologna Process to Educational Governance in the EU?

6 March 2008


On Thursday 6 March, EPP-ED Spokesperson for the Committee on Culture and Education Doris Pack MEP (Germany), chaired a hearing on the Bologna Process, the aim of which is to create a European area of higher education by 2010.

This mechanism facilitates students in choosing courses across national borders and enables different qualifications to be recognised according to a single system. Experts and MEPs assessed the impact of the Bologna Process so far across the EU. Ján Figel', the European Commissioner for Education, Training, and Youth, also participated in the hearing.

The Bologna process has three priorities: the introduction of the three cycle system (bachelor/master/doctorate), quality assurance and recognition of qualifications and periods of study.
