Rincón, Virginia; Barrutia, Jon – European Journal of Education, 2017
In the current context of globalisation it seems inevitable that the international openness of universities would also lead to efforts to attract foreign students.

Olaskoaga-Larrauri, Jon; Barrenetxea-Ayesta, Miren; Cardona-Rodríguez, Antonio; Mijangos-Del Campo, Juan José; Barandiaran-Galdós, Marta – European Journal of Education, 2016
The literature on quality management at higher education institutions has for some time been working on the basis of two issues: a) the diversity of ideas as to what "quality" means, which makes it harder to apply the principles of quality management in this context; and b) the idea that this diversity is in some way a response to the…

Troelsen, Rie; Laursen, Per F. – European Journal of Education, 2014
National cultures are known to influence educational institutions and practices in many ways. It therefore seems reasonable to assume that drop-out from university is also influenced by differences in national cultures. In this article, we compare drop-out from Danish universities with drop-out from European universities. Based on Danish national…

Münch, Richard; Schäfer, Len Ole – European Journal of Education, 2014

Erkkilä, Tero – European Journal of Education, 2014
Global university rankings have portrayed European higher education institutions in varying lights, leading to intense reflection on the figures on the EU and national levels alike.
