European Commission's press release on ACA's study now online

The European Commission has just published a press release about the ACA study investigating the perception of European higher education in non-European countries. The final report and a summary of the study have been available since last month on the European Commission’s website (see the April issue of the ACA Newsletter - Education Europe). Referring to ACA’s report, Commissioner Figel said that: “It tells us that Europe needs to further improve the quality of its higher education, and that it must provide more comprehensive and accessible information on its study opportunities. The Commission will remain committed to the promotion of the EU’s higher education systems, notably through Erasmus Mundus and the Tempus programme”.

The ACA Secretariat is very proud that this study, which would not have been possible without the precious help from the association’s members, has received considerable public attention and interest.
