The objective of the Bologna process, of which the CAD is a part, is to converge higher education (no distinction between public and private education) and the 29 signatory countries in order to end the non-symmetry of courses and diplomas, while maintaining open mobility and single market to students of more than 460 million people.

Terms: all universities, or colleges, and other educational institutions wishing to benefit from the decree’s advantages are required to do the following:

  • adopt the new diploma system: Bachelor, Master and PhD for universities;
  • use the credit system (ECTS) and adopt the new quotes;
  • promote foreign languages for European integration and mobility.
