National Assembly adopts amendments to Higher Education Act on second reading13 February 2020 | 15:22 | FOCUS News Agency
The law ensures compliance with the goals and measures set out in the Strategy for the Development of Higher Education in Bulgaria 2014-2020, adopted by the National Assembly, which aim to optimise the higher education institutional network and improve the management system of higher schools by introducing a model based on transparency, accountability and clear responsibilities.
The MPs regulated the creation of a National Map of Higher Education. It should identify the profile and territorial structure of higher education by vocations and specialties in accordance with the socio-economic development and labour market needs.
The original proposal was to adopt this map by an act of the National Assembly, but it was amended between first and second reading. The MPs decided that the map be proposed by the minister of education and adopted by the Council of Ministers.
