Currently, 12 private universities operate in Slovakia. Although Education Minister Dušan Čaplovič has pledged not to approve the establishment of any additional universities, he did make an exception for a German-language university named Goethe University. Čaplovič defended his action by pointing to the university's quality curriculum and its ties with Frankfurt University in Germany.
