’Hungarian Higher Education 2016 – Strategic progress report’ is avaliable (in English)
The strategic progress report for 2016 presents higher education on as many as forty pages, with lots of tables and graphs, and yet, it is still fragmentary. The authors (József Berács, András Derényi, Péter Kádár-Csoboth, Gergely Kováts, István Polónyi, József Temesi) of the study are all members of CUB-CIHES, but not all of them are full-time employees of the university. Since 2014, the research centre has been open to Hungarian and foreign higher education researchers as well. This gives even more variety to our study, which we recommend to all readers interested in higher education. The report can be downloaded from here.
