The school-system and higher education in Kosovo have been reformed in recent years giving great importance to the quality of the education, and thus creating the basic preconditions for the development of a knowledge based society coming from the young population. With the ratification of the new university law by the Government back in 2004, Kosovo’s higher education authority has introduced educational levels in accordance with the Bologna Declaration.
Great importance has been given to establishing a privately-driven educational system. Currently Kosovo has two state and numerous private universities, with worldwide known educational institutions among them.
With approximately 29,000 students at the two state universities, and at 19,000 students at the private universities, a sufficient stream of highly educated labour is guaranteed. The number of graduates is increasing continuously, with social science graduates over performing those studying natural sciences.
