Abstract
The visibility and the existence of high-quality information of the training program are essential issues to promote the interest of university graduates in order to make its postgraduate studies. This information should be easily accessible and comparable between institutions so they allow an extensive knowledge of the different programs. In present work this information from European and Spanish websites referred to master programs in agroforestry area were analysed. 35 Spanish and 34 European programs were revised. The programs were selected according with the position of the universities in an international quality ranking. 36 items related with the quality of the resources and master outcomes were assessed, as well as 3 items related with accessibility, design and structure of the website. For each group of universities (European and Spanish) the presence of the assessed items was analysed. Besides, a test of difference of proportions was made between both groups, obtaining the p-values to show items with statistically significant differences with 95% confidence. The results allow identifying similarities and differences in the information provided on the websites in both groups and draw conclusions aimed to improve the information offered on degrees. keywords: higher education, graduate, indications of quality, access network.
