Education minister rejects two new private universities

EDUCATION Minister Juraj Draxler will not lend support to the establishment of two new private universities: the A. Ruprecht Technology Institute in Šamorín (Trnava Region) and the University of Economy and Business at an undetermined location.

EDUCATION Minister Juraj Draxler will not lend support to the establishment of two new private universities: the A. Ruprecht Technology Institute in Šamorín (Trnava Region) and the University of Economy and Business at an undetermined location.

Currently, there are 13 private universities in Slovakia.

According to ministry spokeswoman Beáta Dupaľová Ksenzsighová, Draxler chose not to support the A. Ruprecht Technology Institute though he deems the project draft to be of high quality.

“The university education market in Slovakia is oversaturated already and the fields that were to be taught at this school are sufficiently covered by existing universities,” Draxler said, as quoted by the TASR newswire.

The private university in Šamorín intended to provide education to 60 students yearly in the spheres of chemical technologies and mechanical engineering, currently studied by a total of 670 students at two Slovak universities.

The minister also refused to accept the establishment of the University of Economy and Business, as the Accreditation Commission examined all of its study programmes and adopted negative stances to every single one of them, as reported by TASR.
