>A European college degree generally took at least six years to complete before the agreement; now it takes three or four years.

Are we talking about master's degrees or bachelor's degrees here? In my native Finland, the prevalent "college degree" has always been master's degree, and obtaining one has taken 4-7 years depending on one's own capabilities. What's remarkable here is that one didn't need to get her bachelor's first, and virtually none did so. So everyone accepted into a university headed for the master's degree from the start.

What the Bologna Process has changed is that now everyone must complete a bachelor's degree first, then continue for a master's. The average time to get master's degree has remained unchanged.
