Tertiary Education

Question: Is tertiary education a core piece of local capacity building? As outsiders, can and should we be training architects for new and emerging markets? 

According to the World Bank, 7% of Cambodians are currently enrolled in some form of Tertiary Education. Compare this to the World average of 27%.

As defined by the World Bank. What is Tertiary Education and why is it important?

Tertiary education broadly refers to all post-secondary education, including but not limited to universities. Universities are clearly a key part of all tertiary systems, but the diverse and growing set of public and private tertiary institutions in every country—colleges, technical training institutes, community colleges, nursing schools, research laboratories, centers of excellence, distance learning centers, and many more—forms a network of institutions that support the production of the higher-order capacity necessary for development.
