Structural Indicators on Higher Education in Europe--2016. Eurydice Report
Riiheläinen, Jari Matti
Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency, European Commission
This publication presents some structural indicators on higher education in 40 European education and training systems. It examines whether there are targets for widening participation of under-represented groups in higher education and whether countries monitor the characteristics of the student body. Moreover, it looks at whether, and to what extent atypical routes to higher education exist through the recognition of informal and non-formal learning in admission procedures. Also, there are indicators showing whether it is required to monitor completion rates in external Quality Assurance procedures, and whether there is a social dimension in performance-based funding mechanisms. A glossary is included. [This publication is based on a chapter in the Eurydice report, "Structural Indicators for Monitoring Education and Training Systems in Europe, 2016" (ED574058).]
