Bologna Process


The United Kingdom is signatory to the Bologna Declaration, which was designed to facilitate comparability and compatibility between higher education systems across a European Higher Education Area of some 55 countries ( The action lines include developing easily readable and comparable degree systems and adopting a common three cycle system of degree levels. LSE has been monitoring developments in the Bologna Process closely, and has introduced the Diploma Supplements (enhanced transcripts) which form part of it.

Some of the School's master’s programmes are nine or ten months in duration. If you wish to proceed from these programmes to higher study in EHEA countries other than the UK, you should be aware that their recognition for such purposes is not guaranteed, due to the way in which ECTS credits are calculated.
