The students say that the trend will be driven by a competition in the internal higher education field and the need to improve the quality of studies, which is only possible by consolidating the resources of higher education institutions.

A smaller number of universities would allow increasing the flexibility of studies; one institution would have more study fields, while students would be offered more study programmes.

The Union also says that in 2030 students will have more freedom to shape their personal study workload: to decide how long their studies will be, how many modules will be covered in a semester, increase the number of optional subjects, etc.
