Education in Bulgaria
Challenge in higher eduacation
51 university (37 public&14 private)
Only 25% of university graduates start a job that requires higher education;
Almost every third graduate declares that the knowledge and skills acquired at university are irrelevant;
With a fast ageing population that is expected to decline by 27% between 2010 and 2060, university enrollment of 15-24 year old Bulgarians is also projected to decline by 41% during the same period.
With 85% of university graduates dissatisfied with the quality of education, Bulgaria needs to urgently address the challenges of raising quality standards, improving efficiency and investing smartly
What can be done?
an attempt to address these challenges, the Bulgarian Ministry of Education and Science has presented a draft Strategy for developing the higher-education sector over the next 7 years (2014-2020)
quality of education and the link with labor market are the main areas that need attention
Doesn’t this all sound familiar with situation in Latvia?
