Short-cycle higher education


7.2. First-cycle programmes

7.2.2Short-cycle higher education

Last update: 14 December 2022

Short-cycle higher education programmes in the Slovak system of education are currently completely absent.

However, the legislative implementation of the possibility to offer short-cycle study programmes is envisaged and so is the subsequent support of their implementation into the system of education. After the pilot implementation of these programmes at higher education institutions, the involvement of providers of such programmes from subjects outside higher education institutions will be considered. Specific measures and dates of their implementation are elaborated in the Action Plan: Strategy of Lifelong Learning and Lifelong Guidance (Akčný plán k Stratégii celoživotného vzdelávania a poradenstva na roky 2022-2024).
