3.4. Trend in outbound mobility

During the last few years, the trend in the number of students who go abroad to study for a period of time 12 has been increasing for students in a short-cycle higher education programmes (including academy profession programmes) and stagnating for students in a medium-cycle higher education programme (such as professional bachelor programmes).

Since 2001/2002, the number of students in a medium-cycle higher education who go to study abroad has been approximately 1000 students per year. The number of students in a short-cycle higher education going abroad to study is low, although the number has gone from 123 in 2004/05 to 185 students per year in 2007/08.

The number of students studying abroad in 2007/08 corresponds to 7.6% of the graduates with a medium-cycle higher education and 3.8% of the graduates with a short-cycle higher education 13.

13 Mobility statistics 2007/2008: Danish Agency of International Education. The percentage statistics of graduates show how many students have been in an exchange programme relative to the number of graduates in 2007/2008. The count deals with two different groups of students and can therefore only give a general idea of the percentage of a year group that go out in an exchange programme. The base of the calculations is the number of graduates. Therefore, the students who go abroad without completing their study and students who go abroad several times will cause the share shown to be overestimated in relation to the actual share of a year group that goes abroad.
