Study success in higher education: mind the gender gap

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademic

Abstract

Improving study success has become an important topic in most Western higher education systems. Societies require more and better educated people as the basic driving force for the further sustainable development of their knowledge economies. However, after the rise of participation rates throughout Europe, we are now presumably on a level that makes it difficult to raise the rates substantially further. This can be seen as a reason for higher education policymakers to shift their focus to increasing the success of those in the system.
