Georgia plans to authorize universities, schools
Georgia will begin authorizing higher educational institutions and secondary schools. A series of amendments came into force today that stipulate a new authorization process for higher and secondary educational institutions.
The Education Ministry must approve an institution's authorization charter by Sept. 15 and its accreditation charter by March 1. Universities will be required to receive new authorization after their current accreditation expires, National Center to Improve Education Quality David Kereselidze said at a special briefing today.
Only authorized institutions will have the right to issue bachelor, master and doctorate degrees.
Authorization is a voluntary process.
Secondary schools will also be required to pass authorization.
The process will be free for public schools.
