Bologna at the Finish Line

At the third day of the European Student Summit in Vienna, ESU presented its account of ten years of the Bologna Process. The publication is titled Bologna at the Finish Line. You can download the publication here.


Since 2003, ESU has published its Bologna With Student Eyes series. These reports measure the progress of the Bologna Process, seen through the eyes of National Student Unions. They are an alternative to the reports of the European governments, whose reports are rarely telling the whole truth about their implementation of the action lines that are agreed upon by the education ministers.


The publication is part of the project “Enhancing the student contribution to the Bologna Implementation (ESCBI). The project is funded with support from the European Commission.

It also gives tips on how student unions can campaign for equity, and how they can improve the opportunities for everyone to participate in the student union’s work.

The handbook is developed by ESU’s Social Affairs Committee. This publication is part of the project “Equity in higher education from a student perspective”, which is funded by the European Commission’s Lifelong Learning Programme.

The full Bologna With Students Eyes 2009 publication can be downloaded here.


Bologna with Student Eyes 2005

Another European Students' Union publication - "Bologna with Students Eyes" research


For the third time, ESIB is presenting an analysis on the progress of the Bologna Process at European and national level to the Ministerial Summit. “Bologna With Student Eyes” portrays the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) as seen by students and the involvement of students in shaping the EHEA. National unions of students from 36 countries have contributed to this survey with their views, policies and experiences. As compared to the 2005 edition of “Bologna With Student Eyes”, a couple of additional countries are covered in this report. However, some countries covered before could unfortunately not be included in this edition.

Lisbon with Students Eyes

European Students' Union presents you the publication - "Lisbon with Student Eyes" research.


The aim of this research was to identify the different ways in which the Lisbon Startegy is implemented on a national level as well as the student opinion of its’ impact on higher education. For this purpose this study combines an analysis of documents on the European level, an analysis of the National Progress Reports 2005, as well as the results of a student survey with responses from 39 national unions of students from 33 countries. It also drew on the results of a much smaller survey among ESU’s member unions on the Lisbon Strategy and the work of student unions on this topic from 2005.
