The concept of lifelong education has four indicators: school education, social education, formal education and non-formal education. Under the concept of lifelong education, the concept of “higher education” can be summarized as four indicators, such as regular higher education, adult higher education, self-study higher education examination and distance network education. Foreign scholars consider that the concept of “higher education” is aimed at adults, which has little relevance with the concept of lifelong education. In China, the influence of concept of lifelong education on the construction and development of “higher education” is not proposed clearly. Based on the research status, SWT analysis method was introduced. The internal relation between the concept of lifelong education and the concept of higher education was analyzed through the four groups of corresponding relationship between internal advantage and external advantage. Through the detailed analysis of four groups of corresponding relationship such as the school education and regular higher education, the social education and adult higher education, the normal education and self-study higher education examination, the non-formal education and distance network education. The conclusion that the concept of lifelong education could promote the development and construction of concept of higher education in China was obtained. In the process of analyzing each component, the conclusion that the external variables also increased with the increase of internal variables could be obtained. Integrating the variation tendency of four components, the overall variation trend between concept of lifelong education and the concept of “higher education” was obtained. Through this analysis, blanks in our academic research are filled. The concept of lifelong education has a strong role in promoting the development and construction of the concept of higher education. Through a detailed analysis, we will find a better way to develop higher education.
