Is there any research/study/survey/dataset that looked at the trends on the time students spent on studying, over the the past few decades in different countries in the world (aside from the USA)?

I am mostly interested in the field of computer science, if field-specific, and college level, if level-specific.

    In case anyone else tries the same thing I did: the OP is the same as on the earlier question about why study time in the US has declined, and so the linked sources in there probably aren't satisfactory.

  • What are you trying to ask about the US that is not already answered by the data set in the other question?

  • @chipbuster yes my question contains a link to this question. Jan 17 '16 at 19:03
  • @jakebeal ok I'll exclude USA from the question. I am indeed looking for something similar for other countries. Jan 17 '16 at 19:07

For Germany the data is there in the form of the "Studierenden survey", which exists since 1982. However, I don't know if it is analysed. The datasets are available, so I added a list of links to the datasets for the different years in case you want to do the analysis yourself.
