Reviews of National Policies for Education, Austria. Higher Education and Research.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France).
An established practice within the program of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) is an examination, on request, of educational policy and planning trends in individual member countries. It involves: (1) the preparation by the country concerned of a report documenting and explaining current educational development trends and policies; (2) a visit to the country by a team of independent examiners to prepare their own critical evaluation of the situation and a list of questions for the formal examination; and (3) the formal examination, which takes that form of a confrontation between a delegation from the country under review, the examiners, and members of the OECD Education Commission. Although Austria has already been reported on, this review is more limited in scope. It is restricted to the university sector, which has been an area of particularly dynamic growth since the formation in 1970 of a new ministry responsible for higher education and research.
