hoger onderwijs


higher education; the universities and hogescholen; the higher education community; the higher education sector

In Dutch this term is often used to refer to the entire community or sector of higher education, as in 'Hoger onderwijs was unaniem in zijn verzet tegen de bezuinigingen'. In English you must be more specific than this. 'The higher education community unanimously resisted the budget cuts.'
