Abstract: The paper proposes a model of convergence in higher education, based on four main directions and twelve indicators. Using structural equation modelling, the framework is tested and turned into a real model by inputing data obtained, through interviews, from experts in the field of European higher education. Additionally, we employ Eurostat data to test the influence on convergence of some proxies of our considered directions, and give interpretations on the relations between indicators and analyses on actions to be taken to foster convergence in European universities
