Benchmarking Higher Education System Performance

image of Benchmarking Higher Education System Performance

The scope of contemporary higher education is wide, and concerns about the performance of higher education systems are widespread. The number of young people with a higher education qualification is expected to surpass 300 million in OECD and G20 countries by 2030. Higher education systems are faced with challenges that include expanding access, containing costs, and ensuring the quality and relevance of provision. The project on benchmarking higher education system performance provides a comprehensive and empirically rich review of the higher education landscape across OECD countries, taking stock of how well they are performing in meeting their education, research and engagement responsibilities.

Education

This chapter discusses the performance of higher education systems with regard to education and the many aspects of teaching and learning. The metric benchmarking presented covers all OECD member countries, while the policy and practice benchmarking covers the four jurisdictions participating in the benchmarking higher education system performance exercise: Estonia, the Flemish Community, the Netherlands and Norway. Where possible, the selected indicators are broken down by higher education level (e.g. bachelor’s, master’s, etc.) and field of study. Where data are available, this chapter also provides an analysis of the university or professional higher education institution (HEI) subsectors, reflecting policy interest in differences in performance of the different subsectors in their higher education systems.
