The Bologna Process – Main issues

The establishment of a European Higher Education Area by 2010 is a very comprehensive process. Below you will find the list of main issues within the Bologna process. We have classified them in two groups:

We have made both lists according to the discussions that have taken place so far, so it is possible that some additional topics will be included at a later date.

Some of the topics are very much interconnected and we have tried to address this aspect by linking every topic to other related issues. We provide a list of important and useful documents, but if you feel something is missing or have a document you think would be useful – please write to higher.education.research@coe.int. We reserve the right to decide whether or not to include any documentation forwarded.

If you are interested in some general documents on the Bologna Process (not related to any specific topic but to the Process as a whole) please click here.
