The President of the HRK on the signing of the Higher Education Pact: a decision in favour of the universities – still with significant omissions

Following the signing of the Higher Education Pact III by the Prime Ministers of the federal states and by Chancellor Merkel, HRK-President Horst Hippler said: "The continuation of the Higher Education Pact, which was finally passed yesterday, is a decision in favour of the universities that will benefit the students of the future. It appears that sufficient opportunities to study have been secured for them over the next few years. The federal government and the federal states have based their agreement on the current forecasts of first year student numbers. It is now important that the federal states genuinely contribute at least the same amount to the federal funding."

The purpose of the meeting was to prepare a joint recommendation from both organisations that crystallises their shared objectives for the enhancement of teacher education.

A total of 29 universities were presented with certificates for the Audit “Internationalisation of Universities” in Berlin today.

Existing structures, institutional strategies and measures are analysed by expert auditors, who then put forward recommendations for improvement. 24 universities were recognised for their participation in the audit, while another five have already completed the second consulting phase and were presented with certificates for the re-audit, in which external experts support the implementation of the audit recommendations.
