Zanimljiv članak u EUobserveru govori o neuspjehu europskih sveučilišta na globalnoj razini. Pouka: u provedbi "Bolonjske" reforme ugledajmo se u britanska sveučilišta. Nikako ne u njemačka, talijanska, španjolska, austrijska, švedska ili irska.
Citat iz EUobservera
"Europe's institutions of higher education are already in a parlous state. As a continent, we fare abysmally in world rankings: Of the fifty most highly rated institutions in 2007, only eleven are in EU countries.
The US can claim almost twice that number. Furthermore, if we remove the eight UK institutions from the list, we are left with only three from the 26 other EU nations.
Incredibly there are no German or Italian or Spanish or Belgian or Austrian or Swedish or Irish universities on the list. Put another way, if the institutions of every country that joined the EU prior to 2004 were as successful as those of the UK, then Europe would have 50 rateable institutions."
