Cross-border Post-secondary Education in Europe

Centre for Educational Research and Innovation

This chapter provides an overview of developments in cross-border postsecondary education in Europe. The analytical focus is primarily on the European Union, with its current 15 member states (all OECD countries), but attention is also paid to developments in countries belonging to the European Free Trade Area and in the ten candidate member countries that have acceded to the Union in 2004 (of which four are presently OECD countries).
