Example text

The diploma supplement issued with a joint degree should clearly describe all parts of the degree, and it should clearly indicate the institutions and/or study programmes at which the different parts of the degree have been earned. Legislation The Recommendation on legislation is of critical interest here. One important question under consideration in legislative reform is how to remove obstacles to the development and recognition of joint second-cycle degrees. These now clearly define as the equivalent of a one- or two-year taught postgraduate Master’s degree offered jointly by one or more recognised (in some countries accredited) institutions, in the same or different member countries of the EHEA.

In the first new higher education law to be drafted after 1999, that of Kosovo, there was quite clearly a mismatch between what could be achieved by school-leavers in three years and what would be recognizable in Europe as a firstcycle degree. The issue was resolved, but the argument continued up to the final adoption of the law in 2003. Having a common and easily understandable degree structure will hopefully help to make higher education in Europe more attractive to foreign students in that it will be viewed essentially as a single system with a clear identity.

In the recent Tavenas Report (2004), published by EUA, the late author compared and contrasted quality assurance arrangements in a range of higher education systems including those of the USA, Canada, and various member states of the European Union. He noted increased emphasis on institutional quality audits (such as the EUA Institutional Review process), and decreasing interest in invasive, discipline-based quality assessments. The qualitative evidence obtained from the American National Survey of Student Expectations conducted by Indiana University at Bloomington received particular attention and may extend, under contract, to Central Asia and South East Europe.
