Recommendation on the structure of Higher Education (03/09/2010)

The Flemish Education Council stresses the need for an open, democratic and thorough debate on the future structure of Higher Education.

A new structure will have to be considered because of recent national (academicism and rationalisation) and international developments (globalisation, Bologna process, EQF).

The structure has to guarantee stability and certainty for students and staff, has to be transparent, efficient, financially feasible, promote cooperation, respect the regulatory context, support a diversified offer.

The recommendation proposes three models, listing up advantages and disadvantages of each model.
