Organization of higher education structures in Europe (1998/99)
The publication itself is the first in a new series called EURYDICE FOCUS whose prime aim is to illuminate a particular aspect of education systems. This initial contribution to the series is devoted to basic information on the structures and organization of higher education in all countries taking part in the Community action programme in education, Socrates (namely the 15 countries of the European Union, the three EFTA/EEA countries and the 11 pre-accession countries). The information is given country by country in diagrammatic form. Each diagram illustrates the duration of the various kinds... of courses, the existence (or otherwise) of selection at the point of entry, and the names of institutions and the degrees and other qualifications awarded, as well as the opportunity to undertake specialized studies after obtaining the first qualification. The diagrams have been devised to enable and facilitate comparison between countries. At the start of the publication, a short introduction summarizes the main features evident fromthis comparison, but it should in no way be regarded as a thorough analysis.
