The article shows that the current stage of the development of education in the European countries is characterized by great intensity of reform processes in higher education, which are determined by integration processes, the creation of a common European educational space. Attention is focused on the fact that Ukraine's accession to the Bologna process requires structural transformation of Ukrainian higher education system according to the agreed criteria, standards and specifications. In this context it is important to study foreign experience of higher education reforming, especially the experience of Great Britain, a country that has certain historical traditions of higher education, allowing it to occupy a leading place in the world rankings; moreover, it is one of the initiators and active participants of European integration process in education. The features of reforming of the British higher education system, including objectives, approaches, paths, structure, are summarized; it is shown that its modernization at the end of the XX-th and the beginning of the XXI-st century is a natural phenomenon that is not limited to national and state borders. It is determined that in its organizational structure British universities are divided into federal or collegiate universities (consisting of many colleges that have a high degree of autonomy) and unitary (organized on the basis of faculties). The vast majority of higher education institutions in Great Britain are financed from the state budget. It is emphasized that the British system of higher education correlates best with the requirements of the Bologna Process to the development of higher education in Europe, but existing differences are rather difficult to eliminate.
