Who Has the Best Tertiary Education Systems? New Study Finds the Winners are Australia, the United Kingdom, and Denmark. The losers? Germany, Austria, and Spain
The Lisbon Council for Economic Competitiveness and Social Renewal was founded in 2003 and incorporated in Belgium as an independent, non-partisan think tank. Their latest work will likely be of interest to international academics. It is called the University Systems Ranking: Citizens and Society in the Age of Knowledge, a study which was released in Brussels this week. The report found that Australia, United Kingdom, and Denmark have the best tertiary education systems among the 17 OECD countries surveyed. By contrast, the report found that Germany, Austria, and Spain had the least effective tertiary education systems of the 17 countries surveyed. Click here to see the report.
