In today's world, many significant changes occur in the field of higher education just like in other fields. Increasing the quality of higher education, ensuring the transparency and comparability of sustainable education systems at international level and the attempts to make such systems more practical and easily adaptable are the significant dynamics of such changes. Considered as a mega university in the world with its well-established open and distance education system, Anadolu University provides education services for almost half of the students enrolled in Turkish Higher Education system. Since it is a system providing services for more than 30 years, it is now inevitable to initiate a restructuring process according to these certain changes, for which Bologna Process has been an important trigger. The main scope of this study is to examine the changes observed in Anadolu University open and distance education system in parallel with the attempts to adopt Bologna Process.
