Compendium 2014 (for SUNET)

Welcome to the NREN Compendium. The information gathered here contributes to the wealth of knowledge accumulated over decades. Through analysis of this data we can demonstrate the evolution of the NREN community and provide insight into an exciting future ahead.

Answers for the current year will be made public once a sufficient number of questions have been answered. Please note that some answers may be incomplete.

ISCED is the UNESCO International Standard Classification for Education scheme. In contrast to previous years, and in conformity with developments in UNESCO, we are asking you to use the ISCED 2011 classification system, as opposed to the the ISCED 1997 scheme that was used previously. Note that not all countries may have mapped their education systems to the new ISCED levels yet.

  • Level 8 - Doctoral or equivalent level (= the old level 6);
  • Level 7 - Master's or equivalent level (was part of the old level 5);
  • Level 6 - Bachelor's or equivalent level (was part of the old level 5);
  • Level 5 - Short-cycle tertiary education (was part of the old level 5);
  • Level 4 - Post-secondary non-tertiary education. This can include, for example, short vocational training programmes (= old level 4);
  • Levels 2 and 3: Secondary education (level 2 can also stand for the second level of basic education);
  • Level 1: Primary or basic education;
  • Level 0: Pre-primary eductation.

In theory, your Ministry of Education sends information to UNESCO about the edcuational sector in your country on a regular basis. Therefore, they should be able to tell you what types of institutions in your country fall in which category. They should also know how many institutions of each category there are. More information is available from the UNESCO ISCED website.

As a minimum, please answer the information for ISCED levels 6-8.

Are you allowed to serve this category of institution? Approximate number of connected institutions in each category (IP connectivity) Please choose the option that most closely represents the proportion of each category of institutions actually connected by the NREN Comments (if any)
Universities & Other (ISCED 6, 7, 8)
Institutes of further education (ISCED 4,5)
Research Institutes
Secondary schools (ISCED 2+3)
Primary schools (ISCED 1)

This table explores the level of connectivity for each type of institution to the NREN. Please indicate: i) the lowest capacity at which an institution is connected; ii) the typical connection capacity for the majority of institutions in this category of institution; iii) the highest capacity at which an institution of this category is connected.

As a minimum, please provide this information for Universities and Research institutes. Note: Please hold the shift key if you would like to select more than one answer.

Many NRENs may not have the precise data needed to answer this question. However, NRENs are probably well-placed to give a rough estimate.
