The law “On higher education” is the vision of the minister

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has signed a new Law on Higher Education. This was announced by the Minister of Education and Science of Ukraine Sergei Kvit at a press briefing on August 4, 2014. “The law is very important for the development of education and science in Ukraine. This is a reformist law. Virtually the entire educational community, experts and journalists have been working on it for three years, ”Sergei Kvit stressed. The Minister noted that the most important thing is that“ we were supported by the society, the Government, the Parliament and the President. That’s how educational reforms are done. “Sergei Kvit said that the new Law of Ukraine” On Higher Education “is based on the idea of ​​university autonomy:” This is academic, financial and organizational autonomy. Higher education institutions will solve most issues themselves without applying for permits from the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine.In the context of financial autonomy, higher education institutions will have the right to open deposit accounts in banks and place their special funds in them, which are currently serviced by the State Treasury. Together with autonomy and broad rights, we transfer responsibility for their quality to universities. ”A new structure will be created to control quality – the National Agency for Quality Assurance in Higher Education. In addition, according to Sergei Kvit, the new Law of Ukraine “On Higher Education” reduces the workload of teachers: “Today it is 900 hours per year. In fact, there are more than 1000 hours. The new law fixes the training load – 600 hours. Per year. Teachers will be able to pay more attention to research. The classroom study load on students is also reduced. “Also among the main innovations of the Law, the Minister noted the introduction of the third cycle of higher education : “We had a bachelor’s degree (cycle), a master’s degree, and now the third cycle is being introduced – Doctor of Philosophy (PhD). Modern structured PhD programs will be created on the basis of postgraduate and doctoral studies. These are fundamentally new quality requirements. And it is in the third cycle of education that the integration of science and education takes place. “

The reform of higher education is aimed at European integration, – the developers of the Law “On Higher Education”

European Choice: Higher Education Act

On August 7, 2014, a press conference was held with the participation of First Deputy Minister of Education Inna Sovsun, Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Science and Education Lilia Grinevich; Rector of the National Technical University “Kyiv Polytechnic Institute”, Chairman of the working group to develop the Law of Ukraine “On Higher Education” Mikhail Zgurovsky on “The new Law” On Higher Education: the European choice of Ukraine “. During the press conference, Lilia Hrynevych noted that the Law of Ukraine “On Higher Education” will come into force on September 6 this year: “Given the long-term consequences for the country, the adoption of this Law is one of the most important, if not the most important, decision Ukraine after the Revolution of Dignity. “The Chairperson of the VRU Committee on Science and Education stressed that three important things now needed to be done: to inform everyone about the peculiarities of the new rules; provide feedback and identify shortcomings for adjustments; develop bylaws to implement the law. Also, according to her, a “Scientific and Practical Commentary” will be developed to clarify the provisions of the Law. Lilia Grinevich called on the public to cooperate in the implementation of the law: “In order for us to understand what is happening in universities, we need public help. If we could jointly make a site for monitoring this reform, then we would have a real picture of how the reform is going. “She drew attention to three stages of the reform: a number of provisions of the law come into force in September 2014; some of the provisions, which require time to implement, will start working in September 2015 (the National Agency for Quality Assurance in Higher Education will start working); another stage, from which additional possible funding of some provisions of the law will begin, is from January 1, 2016. In turn, First Deputy Minister of Education Inna Sovsun noted: “Today, the Ministry of Education and Science does not perform important functions – the development of educational policy. The Ministry performs an infinite number of approvals, responds to an infinite number of letters … This is due to the functions that are prescribed for the Ministry, the lack of staff … Therefore, the new approach, which is laid down by law, is radically different. Instead of a system of a clear vertical of administrative management of higher education institutions, a completely differe nt model of accountability and responsibility is laid down. ”According to her, the law provides for the responsibility of the university management to employees and students, and not to the leadership of the Ministry. The participants of the educational process will have more opportunities to influence the decisions made at the university. According to Inna Sovsun, the Ministry of Education and Science must become a developer of educational policy and implement new mechanisms. Also, the First Deputy Minister said that all the statistics that the Ministry of Education and Science is trying to collect today are extremely imperfect: “They do not give a complete picture of how many specialists, what industry we train, how they are employed, how many students want to go to certain specialties. Unfortunately, there is no such data in the Ministry today. Therefore, we are now working on the creation of a separate institution – the Institute of Educational Statistics, which will be one of the key levers of influence on the formation of a new educational policy in Ukraine. “She also said that in the near future on the website of the Ministry will be published answers to the most popular questions about the new law. According to the First Deputy Minister, the implementation of the Law will depend on the people who work in the field in the higher education system. During the press conference, the rector of NTUU “KPI”, chairman of the working group to develop the Law of Ukraine “On Higher Education” Mikhail Zgurovsky stressed that the law is one of the first, which is aimed at implementing real reforms in our society. According to Mikhail Zgurovsky, education and science should become the engines of the economy and society. As the rector of NTUU “KPI” noted, the implementation of the Law will be difficult, because the ideas of the Law are aimed at innovation and European integration. “We have to change a lot, even our mentality, vision of the future of society. We have no alternative. We have to go through these difficult transformations in order to become another country, ”Mikhail Zgurovsky said.
