Volume II : overview and trends. Case studies - Study
The theme of this study is student and, to a lesser extent, staff mobility in Europe. It pursues two main aims. First, it analyses both present levels and patterns and the historical evolution over a decade of student – and to a lesser extent – staff mobility into, out of and between 32 European countries (EU-27, EFTA-4 and Turkey, also called the ‘Europe 32 area’). Second, it explores issues around the availability, quality, and depth of information and data on student and staff mobility, i.e. it assesses the adequacy or otherwise of the international data collection in the field of student... and staff mobility. Based on these two major lines of analysis, it makes recommendations both for future improvement in mobility statistics and for measures to raise present levels of mobility. The study consists of two volumes. Volume I – the present one – relates to mobility levels and mobility developments in the Europe 32 area as a whole. Volume II consists of country-based indepth analyses of student mobility. The 11 countries covered are Austria, Cyprus, Estonia, Belgium (Dutch-speaking Community), Germany, France, Italy, Romania, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom. Both volumes address incoming and outgoing mobility as well as diploma (or degree) mobility and credit (or temporary) mobility.
