Reforming higher education in Albania


Jan. 4, 2021

HESA’s expertise in data and analysis is recognised around the world. Last week I spent three days in Albania discussing reform of their higher education sector and advising the government on implementing a new data-driven system.

The government and its agencies (for example - RASH, the Albanian equivalent of Jisc) are building the infrastructure to support these changes (with support from the EU, UK and from CINECA – the Italian equivalent of UUK). Much of the IT infrastructure is now in place and they are focusing on data models, specifications, user engagement, analytics and implementation.
