Uniformity and Diversity in an Evolving University Federation
Pratt, John
Higher Education Review, v45 n2 p77-92 Spr 2013
In 2008, three universities of applied sciences in the Helsinki metropolitan area of Finland signed a partnership agreement to form the Federation of Universities of Applied Sciences (FUAS). In 2011 FUAS invited a small team of international experts to undertake a curriculum review of a sample of its programmes. This article reports some of the findings of this review but goes beyond it to discuss some of the policy and managerial questions that are raised by the formation of a federation such as this.
