The German system of higher education is a binary system that consists of a university and a non-university sector. The institutions of higher education in these two sectors include all institutions (public and private) as defined in the higher education laws of the Länder. Each Land has its own ministry responsible for higher education. At the federal level the Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung is responsible for the implementation of the federal law on higher education (Hochschulrahmengesetzes, HRG). In 1998 in Germany 344 institutions of higher education existed.
