Higher Education in the European Union. Facts and Figures Over a Decade.

An introductory chapter defines the topics covered by the report: enrollment, number of graduates, teaching staff, actual duration of study for higher education graduates compared to stipulated duration, unemployment rates of graduates, and public expenditures. Conceptual differences between Member States are identified and there is a short discussion of comparative levels of education and comparative trends.
