Romanian higher education: present and perspectives


  • Roman, Monica


The paper aims to present the current state of Romanian higher education, based on statistical data on number and trends of student population and staff. The latest progresses in Bologna process are analyzed, with a special attention to international student’s mobility. Based on demographic projection, the paper also reflects the perspectives of Romania higher education at 2025 horizon. Statistics reveal an unseen development of Romanian higher education, in terms of number of students and an increasing international cooperation, but the perspective are more pessimistic. Demographic trends will have a crucial impact on higher education. Romanian universities apply fairly passive policies which reflect rather adjustment to current demographic situation than anticipation of changes to come. Obviously, combining the two approaches would be an optimum solution.
