The "n+i" network in the international arena
Master's degrees awarded by the schools in the "n+i" network are acknowledged internationally according to the Bologna Process.
The Bologna Process
The international agreement commonly known as the "Bologna agreement"
(for Licence, Master, Doctorat – equivalent to Bachelor's degree, Master's degree and PhD) was signed by 47 countries across the world and is acknowledged by many others.
It focuses on three main areas:
- Comparing skills and a level of knowledge with 3 levels:
- Degree (Bachelor),
It is impossible to compare degrees directly (too disparate) or to compare the number of years (as it depends on content). Each degree, in each country is therefore placed at a level of skill: Bachelors, Masters or PhD in order to:
- Encourage student mobility and discovery of other cultures,
- Use a common assessment system, the European Credits Transfer System ECTS for each component of a training course (lessons, practicals, laboratory, project, internship etc.) Find a common denominator (credits) with which to compare courses and encourage student mobility between countries (through the credit transfer system).
Obtaining a Master's degree from one of the "n+i" network schools means you can work or continue studying for a doctorate anywhere in the world!
