The HAPHE initiative aiming at Harmonising Approaches to Professional Higher Education in Europe is a project led by the European Association of Institutions in Higher Education (EURASHE) with a partnership of 10 other organisations active in the field of professional higher education (PHE).
This Profile of PHE in Europe contains the first step of the work conducted by the HAPHE partnership, namely the outcomes of our activities aiming at Mapping Professional Higher Education in Europe. The first part with Profiles of PHE in Europe provides with the most extensive survey of PHE in particular to date, complete with national profiles of 17 EU member states, specifically: Austria, Belgium (Flemish Community, French Community), Croatia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia and the United Kingdom (England). Based on a standardised template the PHE
Country Profiles describe the nature of provision and characteristics of PHE in each of the 16 surveyed countries. The second part with A Typology of PHE in Europe proposes cross-country comparisons, as well as identifies similarities and proposes a typology for classification of the different systems.
This Profile of PHE in Europe is available in printed copies, in PDF format as well as an e-book. Moreover an interactive web tool (http://haphe.eurashe.eu/) has been developed to allow for direct access to the data and results of the partnership’s work.
