Thematic Review of Tertiary Education

 

Many OECD countries have recently experienced rapid growth in tertiary education. With increasing globalisation of the economy and labour markets, their tertiary education systems are facing new pressures. This led the OECD’s Education Committee to request a major review of tertiary education. Twenty-four countries are participating in this review.

The review examines how the organisation, management and delivery of tertiary education can help countries achieve their economic and social objectives. It will focus primarily on national policies for tertiary education systems rather than on institutional policies and practices. Key questions include the economic and social objectives of tertiary education; sustainability, structures, links and mechanisms to ensure quality; mobilising adequate funding resources; and national policies and mechanisms to ensure effective governance.
