Abstract

Universities and colleges in Flanders (Belgium) were established with different missions but this binary system is now under pressure. Tendencies like the 'vocational drift' of universities and the 'academic drift' of colleges seem to be bringing the two tiers closer together. The new governmental legislation does not entirely prevent such developments. Examples in other countries do not point at a general trend towards a unified structure of higher education. On the basis of a survey of students on informatics courses in Flanders, the authors conclude that the profiles of university and college courses in Flanders are still different.
