The Ss. Cyrill and Methodius University will host the second meeting on the proposed new law for higher education on Tuesday. Representative from Macedonia’s largest University, the Government and the Education and Science Ministry, and students and professors will take part in the discussion.


At the first, five hour long meeting last Thursday, it was agreed that working groups are formed to analyze the situation in Macedonia’s higher education and prepare a draft text for a new law.
