The Europa World of Learning is your annual guide to the organizations and institutions currently active in higher education and learning, on a truly international scale. Users will find detailed information for every type of institution, from libraries and universities to learned societies, museums and arty galleries. The new 62nd edition has been given the Europa treatment and is fully revised and updated for 2012; there are nearly 2,000 brand new entries and over 4,500 updated ones.

Every type of academic institution is covered, including over:

  • 7,800 universities and colleges
  • 5,800 research institutes
  • 3,400 museums and art galleries
  • 5,000 learned societies
  • 3,600 libraries and archives
  • 850 regulatory and representative bodies
  • 26,000 publications.

World of Learning boasts detailed entries for all the established beacons of higher education, including the University of Cambridge, Columbia, The University of Paris 06 and Stanford. At the same time, users will find details for more obscure institutions in the developing world. For example, did you know that Honduras has a fantastic archaeological museum in the Comayagua Valley? Or that there is a Vietnamese Association of Historians active in Hanoi?

Users of World of Learning 2012 will benefit from:

  • contact details (physical mailing address, email addresses, phone numbers etc.) for each entry where relevant
  • guaranteed accuracy of information; entries are sourced from the organizations themselves
  • a breakdown of current staff by faculty and colleges for large institutions
  • easy-to-use format, with separate chapters for each country and distinct sections organised by type of institution
  • an introductory survey per country, giving general background to the education system and recent changes over the last twelve months.

This highly acclaimed resource includes separate chapters for every country from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, each with an introductory survey giving details of the country's higher education system. There is a separate section detailing more than 600 international organizations concerned with higher education and scholarship, such as UNESCO, the International Association of Universities and ERASMUS.

New Essays for 2012

Each year the editors of World of Learning bring on board leading commentators on higher education to examine some of the recent phenomena that have been impacting learning over the last twelve months.
