The EUROSTUDENT target group includes all students who are at the time of observation (semester/term) enrolled in any national study programme regarded as higher education (not tertiary!) in a country. Usually, that corresponds to ISCED (2011) levels 5, 6 and 7 (e.g. short-cycle programmes, Bachelor/Master programmes, traditional diploma programmes, Lizentiat, national degrees in medicine etc.) which – in the national context – would normally be considered higher education.
Deviation by country
Short national degrees, long national degrees and ‘other’ degrees (e.g., single subjects) are not included in the sample as they do not exist or constitute a negligible group are not considered to be higher education. Part-time studies were only introduced in 2017 in a pilot scheme for Master programmes (erhvervskandidatuddannelse), on special terms for people in parallel employment. As the first students in such programmes started in September 2018, part-time students only make up a very minor part of the student population and were thus not included in the sample.
