For Global Competition Europe’s Higher Education Institutions Need Excellent Student Services

Europe can expand its leading position as the world’s most attractive region for studying only if the so called student services – accommodation, meal services, information, counselling, career services, child care – are strengthened and if especially the HEI use the student services, besides teaching and research, to sharpen their profile. More than 100 experts from HEI and from student service organisations from 20 countries and four continents reached this conclusion at the first international Student Services conference taking place in Berlin.
