Finland's "Ammattikorkeakoulu": Pursuing World-Class Higher Education.
Campbell, Malcolm B.
International Journal of Educational Reform, v6 n4 p407-11 Oct 1997
Finland's efforts to develop parity between university and nonuniversity higher education sectors are evident in its creation of 22 experimental "ammattikorkeakoulu" (AMKs). These "polytechnics" are gaining increasing centrality in European higher education systems, but have not increased accessibility for women and lower socioeconomic groups. In Finland, AMK demand far exceeds supply. Swedish and Finnish sectors have access, but not the Lapps and Gypsies. (13 references) (MLH)
