Bachelor-master system refers to the system proposed by the Bologna Declaration in which access to the second cycle requires successful completion of first cycle studies. This two-cycle system proposed by the Bologna Declaration was replaced by a three-cycle system in 2005 when the Qualifications Framework of the European Higher Education Area was adopted. The degree awarded after the first cycle is now commonly referred to as the Bachelor's degree, the degree awarded after the second cycle is referred to as the Master's degree and the degree awarded after the third cycle is referred to as the Doctoral degree.
