Higher Education in Nine Countries: A Comparative Study of Colleges and Universities Abroad.
Burn, Barbara B.
In each of the countries studied in this report, colleges and universities have been adapted to national conditions, customs, social structures, and political systems; but familiar trends are visible. Among the most important trends are rapid enrollment growth and a movement toward universal access; rising expenditures; increasing public support; greater involvement in society and diversification to the extent that universities are no longer the central institutions of postsecondary education. The nine countries studied include Great Britain, France, Canada, Australia, Federal Republic of Germany, Sweden, Japan, Soviet Union, and India. (MJM)
