Increasingly, U.S. and other North American graduate and professional schools are finding it necessary to assess their admissions policies regarding international applicants with three-year bachelor's degrees. This monograph captures the presentations and discussions among participants from a November 2006 symposium coordinated by AACRAO in partnership with the Australian Department of Education, Science, and Training; the British Council United States; and the German Academic Exchange Service. The questions and issues raised at the symposium are discussed in this monograph, particularly as they relate to international student mobility; ways in which the adoption of three-year degrees–especially in Europe and Australia–affect U.S. admissions policies and practices; the Bologna Process and Europe's progress toward developing EU-wide three-year degrees.
