Full Members

BFUG membership is based on the membership of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA). The EHEA currently has three categories: Member, Consultative Member and Partner.

The BFUG / EHEA members are 49 countries and the European Commission. As of the BFUG Meeting LXXX, held in Strasbourg on the 11th and 12th of April 2022, it was decided by the BFUG members to suspend the rights of representation of the Russian Federation and Belarus in the EHEA.

To become a member of the EHEA, countries have:

  • to be party to the European Cultural Convention
  • to declare their willingness to pursue and implement the objectives of the Bologna Process in their own systems of higher education
