Mikolaj wants to cut unpopular university programmes

Education Minister Ján Mikolaj wants to allocate less funds to external study programs that are not very popular on the market and whose graduates do not find jobs in the fields they study.

Mikolaj said he hopes the number of these programmes will be reduced, the Pravda daily wrote on August 23.

Graduates with degrees in teaching, philosophy, sociology, psychology and political science most often find jobs in other areas than those they studied.
