What it is

It was developed by the European Commission, the Council of Europe and the Council of Unesco/Cepes. It describes the nature, level, context, content and status of the graduates’ studies, in order to improve international transparency regarding qualifications and to enable equal academic and professional recognition.

It is made up of eight sections:
