Eurydice Brief - Modernisation of Higher Education in Europe: Access, Retention and Employability

Full version DE EL EN ES FR HR LV RO SK SL SV TR

Date of publication: 27 March 2015

Description:

  • From analysis of national policies and institutional practice across Europe, this Eurydice Brief shows that:
  • Few countries have developed policy initiatives, strategies, targets and measures for improving access for people from groups currently under-represented in higher education.
  • Systems to monitor the social characteristics of students could be improved, and data linked to concrete policy purposes - such as improving access and reducing dropout for disadvantaged students.

The widening participation agenda is not yet followed through by governments and higher education institutions as a coherent policy approach involving access, retention and employability.

The Brief draws on key findings from the report, Modernisation of Higher Education in Europe: Access, retention and employability, and covers higher education systems in 34 European countries.
