Latvian higher education institutions should be reformed.


Ilga Suplinska, Education and Science Minister of Latvia, told that the number of higher education institutions in Latvia is not optimal.

While the existing infrastructure is large enough for 160,000 students, there are only 80,00 people studying in Latvia.

The minister said that the situation in the sector is being analyzed and changes considered in the regulation and typology of higher education institutions.

According to the reform planned – a higher education institution with weak academic performance will lose government funding.

The higher education institutions will thus be encouraged to demonstrate their ability to grow and achieve international excellence.

The assessment process is supposed to be completed within the next two years.
