Overview of the higher education system in partner countries
Under the Erasmus+ Programme, the 'Capacity Building in Higher Education' (CBHE) action supports the modernisation of Higher Education in 146 Partner Countries around the world. The CBHE action continues the efforts accomplished over the past 20 years or more by the Tempus programme which had very similar objectives, but was more limited geographically. In order to carry out CBHE projects with Higher Education institutions in Partner Countries, the knowledge of the systems in which these institutions operate is crucial for the success of the projects' activities. For this reason, information... about existing legal frameworks, policies in place and legislative developments is important for beneficiaries and future applicants planning to submit CBHE project proposals. This document forms part of a series of four regional publications describing the Higher Education systems and the reforms currently undertaken, in the countries of four regions: Western Balkans, Eastern Europe, Mediterranean basin and Central Asia.
