Higher Education Access in Post-Soviet Georgia

Overcoming a Legacy of Corruption

  • Chapter

Abstract

Since 2005, Georgian applicants to higher education (HE) need to accumulate competitive test scores in the Unified National Examinations (UNEs) to gain access to higher education institutions. Applicants to public as well as private universities are required to sit the UNEs. Achievement on these exams serves as the sole criterion for granting HE admission and allocating public funding for university tuition. In this chapter, I provide an overview of the policy of centralized admissions to academic higher education in post-transition Georgia. Literature review and documentary analysis are combined with mixed-methods empirical data to critically examine the existing model of tertiary admissi ons.
