The quality of higher education, its value and its realization are among the national priorities in Bulgaria. With the development of society, its needs and expectations, higher education seeks to meet its expectations and business needs. The purpose of this article is to trace the European tendencies for a common European educational space and their reflection in the development of higher education in Bulgaria. A theoretical reading of a number of European and national documents is made to highlight the positive development trend of higher education in Bulgaria. The quality of higher education in Bulgaria is directly tied to and correlated not only with our national traditions, mentality, but also with the European horizons of a united community called Europe.
