09 changes in higher education over the last 50 years: growth and diversification

Ministère de l'Éducation nationale, de l'Enseignement supérieur et de la RechercheLike the previous editions, the 9th edition of Higher Education and Research in France, Facts and Figures presents an annual overview, backed up by figures, of developments within the French system, its resources and outcomes.

09 changes in higher education over the last 50 years: growth and diversification
During the 1960s, long university courses led the developments in higher education (table 09.01): their proportion increased from 69% in 1960 to 75% in 1970 (excluding DUT preparations). They then decreased continuously for around 40 years, reaching 57% in 2010, before increasing again very recently (chapter 12). During the 1970s and 1980s, preparations for DUT (university technology diploma) and especially STS (Advanced technician's section) led most of the growth in higher education, related to the significant increase in the number of Bac holders. Between 1970 and 2014, the proportion of students in "other institutions and courses" (see definition) increased from 15% to 24%, demonstrating a diversification in courses giving access to higher education.
Since 2000, numbers in private higher education have increased by 58%, while total numbers increased by 14% over the same period. The private sector had 438,000 students in 2014, which represents one student in six (chart 09.04). It accounts for around a third of STS and engineering school numbers, and all the business and management schools

Children of employees are proportionally most numerous among holders of the technological Baccalaureat, while children of manual workers in the vocational path

The category of non-tenured teachers showed some contrasting trends over the period in question.

Ministère de l'Éducation nationale, de l'Enseignement supérieur et de la RechercheLike the previous editions, the 9th edition of Higher Education and Research in France, Facts and Figures presents an annual overview, backed up by figures, of developments within the French system, its resources and outcomes.

03 social support for students
During 2014-2015, around 680,000 students received at least one form of financial aid (table 03.01a and table 03.01b). The proportion of students aided was stable compared to the previous year. Over one-third of students (35.8%) enrolled on a course eligible for a support (see opposite) were assisted, which is much higher than the proportion recorded in 2000-01 (28.6%). Several times, the income ceilings for allocating a social support were raised, to increase the number of beneficiaries, and different scales were created in 1999, 2008 and 2013. In autumn 2014, the income ceilings were changed. Consequently, the number of students receiving financial aid of €1,007 (scale 0bis) increased from around 54,000 to 152,000, while the number of students exempted from tuition fees fell drastically. The number of students receiving social support, which now represents 97% of students aided, rose by 2.5% in 2014, while the number of students receiving specific support (one-off or annual) decreased. The proportion of students receiving support was stable in universities (34.7% and classes preparing for admission to Grandes Ecoles (CPGE) (27.7%).
