The French Evolution: France and the Europeanisation of Higher Education
Pilkington, Marc
Journal of Higher Education Policy and Management, v34 n1 p39-50 2012
In this paper, the salient characteristics of the French higher education system are examined in the light of its recent evolution and in the context of overwhelming Europeanisation trends. In spite of major weaknesses still hindering the performance of French universities, it is argued that following the recent wave of reforms, the country is well-equipped to face the numerous challenges of the global knowledge economy.
