Our stocktaking report, along with EUA’s Trends V report, ESIB’s Bologna With Student Eyes and Eurydice’s Focus on the Structure of Higher Education in Europe, confirms that there has been good overall progress in the last two years. There is an increasing awareness that a significant outcome of the process will be a move towards student-centred higher education and away from teacher driven provision. We will continue to support this important development.

This booklet highlights a range of some of the current initiatives and activities in UK higher education. It paints a positive picture of the UK’s work with the Bologna Process, on which UK will continue to build as we progress towards 2010.
