What is Bologna Process?

The initial steps of Bologna Process were taken in Sorbonne in 1998 with the attendance of four countries and it became official after the publishing of the “Bologna Communique” in 1999. The aim of the Bologna Process is to create an extensive European Higher Education Area based on academic exchange that is attractive to European students and academic staff as well as to students and staff from other parts of the world.
The envisaged European Higher Education Area will;

  • facilitate mobility of students, graduates and higher education staff,
  • prepare students for their future careers,
  • -help them live as active citizens in democratic societies and support their personal development,
  • -offer broad access to high-quality higher education, based on democratic principles and academic freedom (Alıntı tarihi, Quoted on 10.09.2008, http://www.ond.vlaanderen.be/hogeronderwijs/bologna/about).
46 countries are included in the process and one of the main aims is to actualize the intercollegiate cultural dialogue and cooperation.
