B 2.2-1 Typology of the Degree Structure
Name B 2.2-1 Typology of the Degree Structure
Description Author: Jürgen Kohler

This article outlines the purposes, methodology, and challenges linked to the introduction of a common European degree structure which is shared in substance and not merely in nomenclature. To that end, the concept of the Framework for Qualifications of the European Higher Education Area, as introduced by the Bergen Communiqué, and its significance for national qualifications frameworks is focused upon, examining the design of qualifications frameworks around aspects of cycle and level, workload, learning outcomes, competences and profile, with specific reference to the so-called Dublin Descriptors. These technical features will be embedded in an analysis of the political background and aspirations behind the drive towards a shared typology of a European degree structure. A survey of future issues arising from the concept and the underlying political issues may eventually help to identify key areas of the ongoing debate.
