The french higher educational system : demographic and economic aspects

Abstract : After one period of significant increase, the number of students should remain stable because of the already known levels of fertility and the evolution of the enrolment role. The population distribution of the students shows a singularity of the French system, which is remarkable because a diversity of institutions act upon different missions. An economic approach makes it possible to evaluate the evolution of the Gross domestic product’s part devoted to higher education. That proportion seems to be inadequate given the needs for the future.
