Kintzer, Frederick C.
Higher Education, v13 n3 p305-28 Jun 1984
Three types of short-cycle higher education, a level between post-compulsory/postsecondary education and university degree completion, are examined: extensions of secondary education, expansions of senior institutions, and units separate from existing schools. The purposes of short-cycle education are discussed, major issues identified, and national approaches contrasted, particularly regarding articulation and transfer. (MSE)
