Event Title

Emerging Trends of Higher Education in Kosovo: A comparative analysis of higher education fund

Session

Education and Development

Description

Recent developments in globalization have set a perspective where knowledge has become very important for human capital, so has become higher education. These demands have raised the awareness of all countries worldwide that they need to educate more of their young people to a higher standard. In line with this, the quality of knowledge gained in higher education has been the central focus within higher education in the last decades. For developing countries, national competitiveness brought more challenges not only in terms of quality of education but also financial means to obtain this education. It was only in the last couple of years that investment in higher education by international donors in Kosovo was assigned a higher priority as compared to the previous decade. This paper discusses the international support in Kosovo for young people to obtaining higher education abroad. Furthermore, it unveils the position of Kosovo as compared to other neighbouring countries to absorbing higher educational funds. The first part of this study focuses on the theoretical framework of higher education, and the second part discusses the philosophy of the brain-gain in Kosovo and the lessons learned.
