The Government insists on re-certification of higher educational institutions, Prime Minister of Ukraine Mykola Azarov said opening a special extended meeting of the Government.

Mykola Azarov noted that compared to 1990, the number of higher education institutions in Ukraine has increased in 2,3 times. We have  861 higher educational institutions with 2,6 million students.

"As a result of this totally inadequate growth, we have terrible devastating disease - breeding amateurism," stressed the Head of the Government.

The Prime Minister noted that despite the fact that the country has not returned to the 1990 GDP level, and last year had the 15% downturn, "appeared whole armies of economists, managers, marketers, lawyers and psychologists." According to Mykola Azarov, it remains unclear, where we could take the appropriate number of qualified teachers for these specialties and what kind of staff they could prepare?

"This problem requires the introduction of more effective requirement system for the higher education in Ukraine. First of all, it is necessary to conduct certification of higher educational institutions to meet the modern requirements to higher education and to assess the quality of the knowledge gained by graduates," stressed the Head of the Government and added that such checks should be carried out both on the latest courses and after 3-5 and more years after graduation.

Mykola Azarov noted that this issue requires special attention also because the President set a clear goal: covering ten years at least three Ukrainian universities must enter the world ranking of 500 best universities.
