CAMBODIA – Big Increasing Number of Students Attend Higher Education in 2012

Do you know how is the number of students growth that attends higher education in Cambodia after high school?

I just read briefly on a research paper about “Establishment of Institutional Policies for Enhancing Education Quality in Cambodian Universities” and found an interesting record about number of students who attend higher education in Cambodia.

The record shows that more students every year attends higher education, in academic of 2011 – 2012, I found interesting record on doctorate and master degree which show a very big different, big increasing number from previous academic year as same as bachelor degree.

However, number of women increasing slowly if comparing to number of men.
