Higher Education in Asia: Expanding Out, Expanding Up (The Rise Of Graduate Education And University Research)
PDF File Size: 10.97 MB | Download   
The report examines the dynamics associated with the growth of graduate education in Asia, with particular attention to the middle-income countries of Southeast Asia (see the Reader’s Guide for the list of countries analysed in this report). The analysis is primarily based on data from the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS), which are complemented by data from national authorities and international organizations. The report is designed to: a) describe the extent of and reasons for the expansion of undergraduate and graduate education across the region; b) clarify the extent to which key actors perceive a tension between expanding out and expanding up; c) examine how universities gauge the quality of their graduate programmes and the actions they take to raise programme quality; d) identify research strength, rates of productivity and extent of international collaboration among countries at both the national and institutional levels; and e) highlight continuing issues that education and government leaders face as they seek to expand higher education opportunity, ensure a qualified instructional staff and promote university-based research. Enrolment in higher education has experienced explosive growth across Asia over the last 20 years, the result of high birth rates, increasing school participation rates, and the perceived importance of advanced education in subsequent life opportunities.
