Access to higher education, particularly for adults, has been a major issue in policy debates in the UK since the end of the 1970s. But during that time, very little reference has been made to policy and practice in other countries. Given the increased mobility of students and staff following the introduction of the single market in Europe and the more recent Maastricht Treaty, and Australia's abolition of the binary line in higher education before the UK, this is a striking omission. This book brings together information not previously available to an English readership, and fills some of the gaps in the debate. It provides a comparative framework within which the policies and practices of other countries, and their relative strengths and weaknesses, are considered. As a result, it enables the identification of elements which are transferable or which offer possibilities for development in other countries.
