Welcome
The CHE is a think tank for higher education. Based on international comparisons, we develop models for the modernisation of higher education systems and institutions. These models we define in close dialogue with decision makers from the higher education sector and politics. We undertake research on higher education and develop political scenarios. Our activities aim at the realisation and testing of new models in terms of steering and controlling as well as organisational models. On the basis of thus gained experience, we assist in further developing these models by carrying out pilot projects and by critically accompanying reform measures.

Focus
The number of students without Abitur has doubled since 2010
57,000 people in Germany without a traditional higher education entrance qualification are currently pursuing academic degrees – the highest number ever so far. The ratio between male and female students is about even; almost every other student without Abitur is over the age of 30. These findings were established recently by the CHE Centre for Higher Education. The so-called third route into higher education, which has been in existence throughout the federal territory for nearly ten years now, enables people with professional experience to qualify for entry to higher education. This option is even applicable for disciplines subject to restricted admission, such as medicine and pharmacy. more
