Logo of the Bologna Process and European Higher Education Area   The aim of the Bologna Declaration, signed June 19, 1999 by the Ministers of Higher Education from 29 countries, was to create the European Higher Education Area (EOSW).

EOSW was ceremoniously inaugurated during the special anniversary conference of the Ministers in March 12-13 2010 in Budapest and Vienna. The communique from the conference was signed by 47 European countries, declaring to further cooperate, restructure and harmonize the European educational systems. The comparability and cohesion of the systems is maintained by:

  • introducing a study system based on two/three levels of education (Bachelor/Bachelor of Science, Master, PhD),
  • ECTS credit system,
  • introducing the Diploma Supplement (a comparable and transparent grading system),
  • promoting both student and teaching/academic/administrative staff mobility,
  • the European cooperation for the sake of high quality of the Higher Education,
  • promoting life-long learning.


Student  Mobility Programme

TUL students can study abroad for one semester or the full academic year benefiting from the Erasmus Plus Programme logo inserted in the text programme. It was started in 2014 and replaced the previous Erasmus programme, the “Lifelong Learning” sector programme, combining “Jean Monet”, “Youth in Action”, “Erasmus Mundus” and “Tempus” schemes.


The ERASMUS PLus programme supports financially all the students who want to study or do an internship abroad. They can also take part in the voluntary service and numerous workshops offering formal and informal education.


The main aim of the ERASMUS Plus programme is to support education, provide better job opportunities for the youth, as well as create programmes for the staff working with the youth.

Establishing effective cooperation between universities, schools, companies and the European Union organisations is another important aspect of its activity.
