Many German students are frustrated by the "Bologna Process" reforms under which European higher education attempted to become better coordinated with similar requirements from country to country, Spiegel Online reported. Many German universities used to have four-year undergraduate programs, but Bologna reforms have cut the programs to three years. Many German students complain that there is more material than can be covered in three years, and that there aren't enough spaces in master's programs.
