Abstract

This Student Handbook has been prepared, for the assistance of students and their advisers, to bring together in all Community languages the basic information needed by those considering a period of higher education in another Member State. The Handbook contains an entry for each of the Member States of the Community. Each entry consists of two main sections, a descriptive text and annexes. The text gives general information on the structure of the higher education system, its institutions and the types of qualifications obtainable, on admission conditions and application procedures, and on fees, language requirements, and grants, as well as an indication of important social elements such as social security, counselling, accommodation, etc. The annexes to each country entry contain a list of addresses of organizations and institutions from which further information and/or application forms may be obtained, a bibliography of national information material, in most cases a table of subjects taught at each institution, and a glossary per national entry for the explanation of terms that have not been translated. In addition to the national entries, the Handbook contains separate entries for the College of Europe at Bruges and the European University Institute at Florence. It also includes detailed information on arrangements between higher education institutions in the Member States for the exchange of students and academic staff, and publishes a list of the information centres established within each Member State to provide information on the procedures prevailing for the academic recognition of diplomas and periods of study abroad. The work of these centres is coordinated by the Commission of the European Communities. Finally, this edition gives information on the provision of special facilities for disabled students at higher education institutions.
