Limit on university enrolment quotas

HCM CITY (VNS)— Twenty-three universities and colleges will have their enrolment quotas cut by between 10 and 100 per cent because of failures to meet required conditions on lecturers and facilities, the Ministry of Education and Training has announced.

The move aims to ensure training quality as well as equality in admissions between public and private universities and colleges.

Most universities slated for such cuts are public schools.

The HCM City Industrial University, which tops the list of schools having the deepest cut in enrolment quotas, will be allowed to enroll 7,500 students this year, compared to last year's target of 17,505 students.

The Mekong University suffered a 120 per cent admission cut, while the HCM City University of Food Industry will be allowed to admit 4,000 students this year, half of its target set last year. — VNS
