Welcome to IHEM

The CHEPS International Higher Education Monitor (IHEM) is an on-going research project, commissioned by the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science. The project aims to provide higher education policy makers with relevant and up-to-date information on national higher education systems and policy changes. The IHEM has three components:


Thematic elaboration through thematic reports that cover specific themes


A permanently present online “helpdesk” for quick answers on specific areas of interest


The higher education trendspotter - an “information retrieval system” - monitoring higher education policies in a number of higher education systems, stored in a user-friendly and accessible database on a continuous basis
