Terms of Reference of the External dimension Working group

In order to realise the objectives set by the Ministers, the Working Group shall:

1.  Consider what further development of the framework may be required, particularly the linkage between national frameworks and the EHEA-framework; the Working Group may invite member countries to participate in pilot projects of self-certification of national frameworks; it may conduct a survey on how credit ranges and credits are defined in national legislation;

2.  Support the Working Group on Stocktaking in the stocktaking exercise of implementation of national frameworks; 

3.  Monitor the development of the European Qualifications Framework for Lifelong Learning with the aim of ensuring complementarity between that framework and the EHEA framework and advise BFUG on the matter; and

4.  Provide assistance to member countries working to introduce national frameworks.


The Group will submit progress reports to BFUG and a final report of its findings to the London Conference through BFUG.
