To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, whether it is his policy to seek for the UK to remain a member of the Bologna Process after the UK's withdrawal from the EU; and whether he plans that UK university degrees will be considered compatible with degrees in EU member states under the Bologna Process following the UK's withdrawal from the EU.

The Bologna Process, which created the European Higher Education Area in 2010, is an intergovernmental agreement among 28 countries in the European region. It is not an EU body and therefore UK membership will not be affected by the UK’s departure from the EU.
