Student mobility has a way to go, university group says

The Bologna process of coordinating higher-education provision across Europe has delivered “momentous improvements”, but there are still obstacles to student and worker mobility, a university group has declared.

The process, which began with the backing of 29 ministers of education in June 1999 and now has 48 member countries, “has no match in history” in terms of efforts to increase the compatibility of European education and qualification systems, the Coimbra Group of multidisciplinary universities said in a statement on 24 April.

“There remain obstacles for a uniform recognition of qualifications by employers as well as for the development of joint degrees, international curricula and student mobility,” the group said, making its views known in advance of a meeting of participating education ministers taking place in Paris on 24 and 25 May.
