This publication reports on the aims of the Bologna Process to establish a European higher education area by 2010, namely adoption of a three-cycle structure (Bachelor/Master/Doctorate), introduction of the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS), the provision of the Diploma Supplement, the recognition of joint degrees, the introduction of national qualifications frameworks and the development of quality assurance in higher education.
