Education Minister Ján Mikolaj (SNS) believes there will be fewer universities in Slovakia.

In a speech marking the opening of the academic year at the Slovak Technical University in Bratislava, Mikolaj said that the shrink will result from the accreditation process that all universities are undergoing at the moment.

The schools will be divided into three types: universities, universities not classified and technical colleges. Universities will be considered those schools of higher education in which science and research have reached a sufficient level.

"I personally believe that the schools with problems meeting the criteria will join the stronger ones," Mikolaj said. SITA
