Drop in student enrolment threatens universities

After growing rapidly for two decades, higher education enrolments in Poland peaked in 2009, having risen fivefold to almost two million. This year, the numbers have tailed off and are set to fall farther, even though Poland's university enrolment rate is the fourth highest among OECD nations, writes Jack Grove for Times Higher Education.

By 2020, the number of 19-year-olds in Poland will be about 361,500 - almost half the level of 2002's high-water mark, when those born at the height of the baby boom of the early to mid-1980s reached university age, according to a report published by the Perspektywy Education Foundation.
