International comparisons in postgraduate education: quality, access and employment outcomes

This report is the outcome of a study to compare postgraduate education in eight countries: Australia, England, Germany, India, Norway, Scotland, Spain and the United States. The study focused on taught (PGT) and research (PGR) postgraduate programmes, and aimed to reflect the range of postgraduate degrees (masters and doctorate), diplomas and certificates. Case studies of each country were developed through a survey of relevant literature and interviews with key informants from each country.

The report focuses on the three overarching themes - quality, access and employment outcomes of postgraduate education - and includes comparisons between England and the other countries in the study in order to identify the strengths and challenges of the various postgraduate education systems.
