The key goals of the Bologna Process are: * Every degree is publicly defined so its meaning is known in terms of the demonstration of knowledge; the application of knowledge; fluency in the use of information; the breadth, depth, and effectiveness of communication; and the degree of autonomy gained for subsequent learning. * There is broad understanding of the differences in performance criteria for associate, bachelor's and master's degrees. * Credits are based on a common standard of student workload - and, in a growing number of countries, individual courses are assigned a level of challenge - so the combination of workload and level guarantees transfer of credits. * Every student who earns a degree receives, as a supplement to the diploma and a transcript, an official documented summary of the setting, nature, purpose and requirements of the degree and major program - and a description of what the student did to earn the degree.
