Statistical reports

In Belgium the responsibility for education has been transferred to the Flemish and French Communities. The relevant rectors' conferences (VLIR and CRef), together with the corresponding Ministries, collect the data for their own parts of the country. The University Foundation uses the data collected by the two Communities to publish a statistical report covering the Federal Belgian State. This is no simple task because the organization of university education in the two Communities has been drifting apart. A comparison and synthesis of the Communities' data is contained in the yearly report of the University Foundation. This report is an interesting tool for national as well as for international purposes.

The format of the Statistical Reports has been adapted to the evolution of technical resources.

  • Until 2000, the reports were published on paper, in book form.
  • From 2001-2002 a switch was made to electronic carrier: CD-Rom and website.
  • Since presently tablets, smartphones, and most PCs do not have a CD-ROM reader, the statistical reports are currently only available in electronic form on the website.

Starting from 2001-2002 the data are are availble in electronic form below. For earlier years the data are in bookform and can be consulted at the University Foundation.
