In 1999, Ministers responsible for higher education from 29 European countries signed the Bologna Declaration. They agreed on important joint objectives for the development of a coherent and cohesive European Higher Education Area by 2010. These include efforts to promote effective quality assurance systems, to step up effective use of the system based on two cycles (undergraduate and graduate) and to improve the recognition system of degrees and periods of studies.

This initial overview is centred on Masters programmes (second cycle of higher education). The fields of study selected for this overview are related to a broad definition of European HRD. The progress in implementing Masters programmes in Europe is briefly documented. The directory (2004/2005) includes examples of Masters programmes according to the Bologna terms, supplemented by cases of International or European Masters programmes (e.g. MBA). The overview is underpinned by an analytical review of the evidence. An update on the discussion of issues related to the implementation of new Masters programmes concludes this presentation.
