WHAT IS PROFESSIONAL HIGHER EDUCATION?

VIEW THE PUBLICATION OF THE HAPHE PROJECT

The report presents the definition of professional higher education (PHE) and the accompanying framework of characteristics, outcomes of the HAPHE project. This publication was made possible by survey replies from more than 600 European stakeholders and by debates in 12 national and European validation seminars. The report starts out with a short historical view on 'academisation' and 'professionalisation', illustrating how much European PHE has been in flux over the years.
