Project Name:

Quality of Higher Education in National and Global Contexts


Project Type:




May 1, 2011- April 30, 2012


The aim of the proposed project is to provide an expert discussion framework and to stir up a broad public debate on the issue of the quality of higher education in Bulgaria in a comparative perspective with practices in other European countries. The task ahead is to diagnose the current condition of Bulgarian higher education as well as to polemically articulate specific policies for binding state funding – most of all – to the evaluation of the quality of education.
