How has the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) progressed since the Yerevan Conference in 2015? The latest report "The European Higher Education Area in 2018: Bologna Process Implementation Report" paints a broad picture of this ongoing process.
In preparation for the European Ministerial Conference in Paris, which will take place on 24-25 May 2018, this report explores the evolution of the EHEA since the Yerevan Communiqué in 2015. By using qualitative information and statistical data, the report outlines the current state of play of the Bologna Process from various stakeholders' perspectives. It also explores the priorities of the Bologna Process: learning and teaching, social inclusion and employability throughout its seven chapters:
- The European Higher Education Area Landscape;
- Learning and Teaching;
- Degrees and Qualifications;
- Quality Assurance and Recognition;
- Opening Higher Education to a Diverse Student Population;
- Relevance of the Outcomes and Employability; and
- Internationalisation and Mobility.
The EHEA is the result of countries working together to build an area using common tools. These countries implement reforms on higher education on the basis of common key values. They continuously adapt their higher education systems to make them more compatible and strengthen their quality assurance mechanisms.
The report is the outcome of a close collaboration between the Bologna Follow-up Group (BFUG), Eurostat, Eurostudent and Eurydice, a network of 42 national units based in all 38 countries of the Erasmus+ programme.
The following organisations were involved as well: European University Association, the European Students Union and the European Quality Assurance Register for Higher Education.
