About the Higher Education Financial Reform


  • T. Klyachko
  • S. Sinelnikov-Murylev.


The article deals with higher education reform in Russia. Special attention­ is paid to the innovations after the Federal law No 83 was adopted (2010). The authors analyze whether the reforms lead to financial self-dependence of universities­, whether they do create a more competitive environment (which promotes­ a better education), and how the normative per capita financing affects the higher education system. Аnalysis of the first reform steps shows: the results are contradictory, many applied methods do not lead to the desired effect. The main obstacles are other institutions: first of all the system of higher education­ institutions accreditation and licensing. For further efficiency growth of higher education political (administrative) methods are needed. Only after application of administrative methods the economic methods will work properly. During the reforms it is also necessary to account for the social situation in the country.
