International Handbook of Universities. Sixteenth Edition.
Taylor, Ann C. M., Ed.
This handbook, first published in 1959, has grown to include more than 7,200 institutions in 176 countries. These institutions are considered to be of university level by the competent national authority or academic body. The decision as to whether or not the institution is a "university" is decided in each country. Entries are arranged alphabetically by country and within each country. The name of the institution is given in English, followed by the name in the national language. When available, the names of academic and administrative officers are given. Lists of faculties, colleges, departments, schools, and institutes are intended as a general guide to the structure of the institution. Admissions requirements are generally summarized, and the names of degrees, diplomas, and professional qualifications are generally given in the language of the country. New to this edition is a description of Student Services for each university where the information is available. Statistics on the academic staff and student enrollment complete the entry, with breakdowns for foreign, part-time, and distance education students when available, and information on numbers of male and female faculty and students when available.
