Leaving mono-cultural (Christian) Europe and the transition to multiculturalism which is the result of colonial and post-colonial policies of many European countries, creates new challenges in the fi eld of integration. One of the possible instruments of integration is education. Th e study presents and evaluates the current university education integration process, and there are also presented some possible scenarios for further development of this form of integration. Th e process of European integration, supported by education, includes not only the content, the programs, or courses of study, but also the system of formation the future generations of the Europeans. Applying the education as an instrument of the European integration has been performed since the nineties of the twentieth century. Nowadays it is being run in accordance with the Treaty of Lisbon and many other normative acts of the EU, aiming to create a standardized educational space in Europe. However, this raises the fundamental question of the degree of social acceptance of such the processes and their eff ectiveness. For this purpose, the study analyzes the EU political normative acts, applying the statistical data and the elements of public opinion statements published in the leading European media.
