International Comparative Study concerning Continuing Education: GB
Vergleichsstudie zur wissenschaftlichen Weiterbildung




Within the International Comparative Study the f-bb is responsible for the study relating to the structure and organisation of post-initial higher education opportunities in Great Britain.


Several European countries, amongst them Germany, have committed themselves to implementing the Bologna Process. As one of the consequences, the higher education systems of several European countries are presently undergoing major changes. Whilst doing so, these countries certainly stand to benefit from the experience of countries, such as Great Britain that have already carried out significant reforms in their higher education system.

The International comparative study, the f-bb is conducting, aims to give a representative overview of the structure and organisation of post-initial higher education opportunities in the United States of America and in Europe, including countries such as Austria, Finland, France as well as Great Britain and Germany.
