NEW EDUCATIONAL SCENARIO UNDER THE EHEA
Under the directives set by the European Higher Education
Area, the official university degree qualifications are grouped in three separate study cycles each
leading to the award of a specific degree qualification.
First-cycle studies lead to an EHEA degree qualification (in most cases for a total of 240 European credits) while second- and
third-cycle studies (known together as postgraduate programs) lead to the award of master's degree
and a doctoral qualification.
