Traditional boundaries for higher education institutions have become increasingly fluid as they try to adapt to the rapidly changing conditions of a globalized world. Higher education has entered an era where lifelong (and life-wide) learning is not only necessary to modern life but it is also now viewed as a basic human right. Also, formal learning can no longer be achieved solely through a set period in education, such as three or four years of undergraduate studies. Knowledge and skills must be continually upgraded in order to adapt to changing economic, social, and technological conditions. These factors have created a need for people to continually learn through every stage of their lives.
