Rapid Reports. Regions. Pupils and Students in the Community regions 1990/91. 1993.3
Participation in compulsory education does not vary significantly among the Community regions. By contrast, considerable regional variations occur in both pieschool and postcompulsory education. A relatively large proportion of students in higher education study in capital/major cities. This tendency applies, in particular, to nonnational students from countries outside the EC. Nonnational students from countries within the Community are more concentrated in regions adjacent to national borders.
