Students who gain entrance to a university may complete a “bachelor`s” degree after four years or a “specialist`s” degree after five years. A “master`s” degree is awarded after two additional years following the “bachelor`s” degree or one additional year after the “specialist`s” degree.
Although the Kyrgyzstan ratified the Lisbon Recognition Convention in 2004, it is not a State party to the European Cultural Convention of the Council of Europe, and there is – as far as is known – no consideration of expanding the geographical scope of this Convention. It therefore seems clear the Kyrgyzstan is not eligible to join the Bologna Process under the criteria defined in Berlin.
