This document is focused on the reform of educational system in Bosnia and Herzegovina. It also deals with higher education and promoting research in BiH (page 17 and 19). It promotes the idea that the education system is crucial to the development of the country’s intellectual capital. It is in urgent need of modernization and to enhance the quality of education a combined and sustained effort shall be taken. Education must be available for all, fairly and without discrimination.
University students are often not properly prepared to meet competitive standards. The goal to be achieved is the establishment of a higher education system with credible structures and instruments of effective governance, management and accountability. In this connection the Bologna Process offering a tested framework of university reform shall be taken as a model.
