The IAU (International Association of Universities) has a commitment to provide access to information on higher education. In a joint effort with Unesco, the IAU produces the World Higher Education Database Online. This database brings together information on 14,000 Higher Education institutions in more than 180 countries.
- fully searchable and cross-referenced data
- detailed information on the higher educational system of each country and of each institution
The data are updated annually in January. There is both a quick search facility and an advanced search facility to enable the user to easily find detailed information as soon as possible.
