  • Bologna Reforms at the Warsaw University of Technology

    Institutional Implementation Strategies and Lessons Learned

    Andrzej Krasniewski, Wlodzimierz Kurnik

    The Bologna reforms at the Warsaw University of Technology (WUT) are discussed in the context of changes taking place in the system of higher education in Poland. The article shows various aspects of these reforms, starting with changes that originated and were successfully implemented at individual faculties long before the Bologna Declaration was signed. The authors present the impact of transformations in the study system on the organisational structure of the university, with identification of success areas, as well as some problems that have not been solved. The article discusses lessons learned – those that are specific to WUT and those that seems to be of more general character, in particular, key factors that determine the success of the Bologna reforms. Finally, the article demonstrates the impact of the developments taking place at WUT on the national system of higher education.

  • Implementation of the Bologna Objectives at the K.U.Leuven: Challenges, Objectives and Outcomes

    Piet Verhesschen, Kurt De Wit

    The Bologna declaration challenged the K.U.Leuven in two main ways. First, the legal context in which it had to operate changed. In Flanders the Bologna objectives were translated in a number of laws changing the organisation of higher education entirely. Second, the Bologna declaration was taken as an impetus for change at the institutional level as well. All programmes were revised and internally accredited, the education and examination regulations were revised, a procedure for the accreditation of prior learning was introduced, and measures were taken to facilitate student mobility between programmes. This article describes the legal context of the reforms in Flanders and the management structure and procedure that were developed at the level of the university in order to implement these innovations.

  • Implementing Bologna: Experience from German Higher Education Institutions

    Christiane Gaehtgens, Peter A. Zervakis

    This article discusses the implementation process of Bologna reforms at German higher education institutions, as observed and evaluated by the German Rectors’ Conference in their project to support 26 German universities in this reform process. The article takes a dual perspective in illustrating both the positive and negative lessons learned. As well as presenting the programme in which 22 higher education institutions were selected to receive intensive assistance from a team of consultants on Bologna, thus professionalizing the administrative side of the implementation process, it also reflects on the insights gained regarding the Bologna process at institutions of higher learning and, consequently, on the implementation of Bologna reforms.

  • Implementing Bologna: The Greek Case

    Foteini Asderaki

    This article describes how Greece, despite lagging behind other countries in the implementation of Bologna since its inauguration, has since 2004 made a concerted effort to catch up through a large number of legislative reforms. The article analyses initial hostile reactions to the process, and the resulting introversion and refusal of all reform efforts. However, as the need for wide-reaching reform became progressively more urgent, given Greek commitment to national as well as EU Lisbon strategy goals, the debate became more open and HE was placed at the centre of the Greek political agenda. The article examines the state of the major reforms undertaken so far and the national and European contexts behind these.

  • Inclusiveness and Responsiveness: the Case of Erasmus University Rotterdam

    Steven W. J. Lamberts

    This article describes how Erasmus University Rotterdam has responded proactively over the past number of years in order to increase participation and inclusiveness of children from immigrant families in university education. Most of these families have their roots outside the European Union and have no tradition of participation in higher education. The article discussed six concrete measures which the university has taken to address issues linked to the specific needs of these students.
