The EUROSTUDENT project collects and analyses comparable data on the social dimension of European higher education. A wide range of topics related to students’ social and economic conditions are covered. The project strives to provide reliable and insightful cross-country comparisons. It does this through coupling a central coordination approach with a strong network of national partners in each participating country. In this way, an assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of the respective national frameworks in international comparison can be made. The main users of our findings are higher education policy-makers at national and European level, researchers in this field, managers of higher education institutions and - of course - students all over Europe. EUROSTUDENT makes all collected data available in the EUROSTUDENT database. Comparative analyses by the EUROSTUDENT consortium are published in open access format. The national and comparative data have also been used for many associated reports. Browse the publications database to see whether we have already published on your favourite topic! Currently, the project is in its seventh round, which began in June 2018. The results will be published in spring 2021. For the first time, a Scientific Use File, allowing external users to conduct in-depth analyses with the EUROSTUDENT micro data, is also planned.
Due to its broad thematic coverage and the involvement of different stakeholder groups, EUROSTUDENT aims to benefit different target groups, either through direct involvement in the project, or by drawing on the publicly available data and results.
