Higher education policy refers to education policy for higher education institutions such as universities, specifically how they are organised, funded, and operated in a society. According to Ansell (2006) there are "three different institutional forms of higher education provision: the Anglo-Saxon, Continental and the Scandinavian education system."
Anglo-Saxon education system
According to Ansell (2006), "[t]he Anglo-Saxon education system leads to a mass, partially private and publicly inexpensive system". The Anglo-Saxon system is sometimes described as an Anglo-American education system.
Continental education system
According to Ansell (2006), "[t]he Continental educational system leads to an elite, fully public and inexpensive system".
According to Ansell (2006), "[t]he Scandinavian education system leads to a mass, fully public, but highly expensive system".
