Completing the Landscape Process for Irish Higher Education
In February 2012, as part of the implementation of the National Strategy for Higher Education to 2030, the HEA published its document -Towards a future higher education landscape -and invited higher education institutions to engage with the HEA in respect of the future position of each institution in the higher education landscape.
The HEA intends to provide advice to the Minister for Education and Skills in March on its view of a future configuration of the Irish higher education system. Prior to reaching conclusions further consultations will be held with the higher education institutions in February. It is intended that those consultations will be informed by this document, which draws together the various inputs, expert analysis and submissions to date and provides an outline structure and potential reconfiguration options for the future higher education system in Ireland.
