Ukraine to Modernize Higher Education System with World Bank Support

The World Bank approved a $200 million project to support the Government of Ukraine’s efforts to strengthen efficiency, quality, and transparency of the country’s higher education system.

The project – Ukraine Improving Higher Education for Results – will finance investments in the modernization of teaching and research facilities and digital learning infrastructure of higher education institutions (HEIs) to ensure learning continuity through remote learning modalities and to support resilience and change management over the longer term. It will also support the development of modern digital infrastructure for distance learning and creation of advanced teaching and research laboratories and learning support facilities. Another objective is to improve transparency of Ukraine’s education sector through modernization of the HE Management Information System and establishment of a National Student Survey and unified information system on competitive research funding of HEIs.
The Project will be implemented over 5 years by the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine.
