The report shows to what extent the higher education landscape in 2012 has been transformed by the Bologna Process and describes the state of implementation of the process from various perspectives using data collected in 2011. It illustrates that all countries have made significant changes that have enabled the European Higher Education Area to emerge, and which have laid the ground for higher education that is serving an increasing range of societal demands.

The report covers a wide range of higher education issues, including the demographic and funding context for higher education; degree structures and qualifications; quality assurance; the social dimension of higher education; outcomes and employability, as well as lifelong learning and mobility. While highlighting progress made on these key issues, the report also reveals that the Bologna Process continues to evolve through turbulent times, and that in recent years, a number of challenges seem to have intensified. The Bologna Process Implementation Report is the result of a joint effort by Eurostat, Eurostudent and Eurydice and has been overseen by the Bologna Follow-Up Group.
