EU online consultation about the current situation in Europe's higher education systems


The European Commission has started to review the EU's modernisation agenda for higher education, published in 2011, to ensure EU activities in higher education are as useful as possible.


As part of this review, the Commission has launched an online consultation to collect the views of stakeholders about the current situation in Europe's higher education systems, as well as on priorities for change. Specifically, the consultation questionnaire focuses on:

  • the current strengths and weaknesses of higher education in the EU
  • the priority areas where those in charge of higher education should focus their attention and
  • how you think the EU should support efforts to improve higher education.


We would like your views, and invite you to complete the online questionnaire which can be found here


The public online consultation is open until 29 February 2016. It will be complemented by targeted stakeholder consultations.

A summary of the contributions to the online consultation will be published on the Commission's Europa website one month after the publication closes.
