Introduction The implementation of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) in Spain has not been a controversy free process. It¿s required monitoring and evaluation to know its strengths and weaknesses in order to do the change process successfully. The aim of this study was to analyze how undergraduate students of Physical Activity and Sport Sciences perceive the implementation of the new system. Methods A validated questionnaire (Coterón & Franco, 2012) was administered to 478 Physical Activity and Sport science students in order to know their opinion about new studies? quality respect to 4 areas: general aspects (GA), academic organization (AO), teaching (T) and Bologna Process (B). A multiple linear regression was performed (backwards method) for rejecting low significance variables and determining which school organization variables (GA, AO and B) influence students? perception about B. Significant level was set at .05 Results Descriptive statistics were: GA (M=3.77, DT=.72), AO (M=3.34, DT=.68), T (M=3.18, DT=.61), B (M=2.22, DT=1.02).Variable T was significant (t = 5.62, p <0.001) in predicting the perception of B explaining 27% of the variance. Variables GA (t = 0.64, p> 0.05) and AO (t = 1.23, p> 0.05) were excluded from the model as not being significant. Discussion This study shows how methodology is considered the main strength on the Bologna process perception. According to existing literature students perceive participatory methods, one of the main basis of the new plan, as positive for their learning (Montaño & Palou, 2008; Ruiz & Oliveros, 2006; Sáez, 2000). Descriptive statistics analysis show a high satisfaction level with the new Degree, higher than found in a similar study among students of bachelor?s previous plan (Coterón et al., 2012). However, there¿s a low overall assessment respect the Bologna process mainly due to the late start in Spain and the lack of information received (Castaño et al., 2007). The results of this study suggest, according to the findings the literature, the need to implement better information systems. References Castaño, E., Benito, Á., Portela, A., Rodríguez, R. M.
