The Higher Education Policy Research Unit (HEPRU) is an interdisciplinary research unit located within the Centre for Social and Educational Research, and this blog is maintained by Andrew Gibson. As the only research group in Ireland looking at questions of strategic and policy concern to the future of higher education in Ireland, HEPRU has established a strong international reputation for comparative policy research and analysis, and higher education assessment and evaluation.

HEPRU works closely with international and higher education organizations (e.g. the OECD, UNESCO, International Association of Universities (IAU), European University Association (EUA), European Centre for Strategic Management of Universities (ESMU), and Higher Education Authority of Ireland (HEA), in addition to national governments and higher education institutions (HEIs) in Australia, Belgium, Denmark, Egypt, Ethiopia, Jamaica, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Romania, Serbia, Saudi Arabia, and Sweden, and private foundations.

HEPRU provides opportunities for postgraduate studies by research leading to an MPhil or PhD, and welcomes international scholars.
