INbrief
ONE IN FOUR UKRAINIAN UNIVERSITY
STUDENTS disclosed participation in corrupt activities,

according to a new report. The Maastricht Economic and
Social Research Institute on Innovation and Technology
at the United Nations University in the Netherlands
report says corruption is on the rise in Ukrainian higher
education. Corruption activities range from accepting
bribes in exchange for passing grades on exams and

The Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv is located in the capital city of
Ukraine, a country struggling with corruption in its higher education system.

classes to the misappropriation of government resources
and inappropriate hiring and appointment processes.
The report examines how systemic corruption in
education leads to an endemic and normalized culture
of corruption in the society at large, using Ukraine as a
case study of the corruption in higher education that is a
theme in many countries with "transition economies."
The case study is based on data from Ukraine's
Security Service, Prosecutor General's Office, National
Anti-Corruption Bureau, National Registry of the Court
Cases and Ministry of Internal Affairs, and from the
website Profrights.org, where individuals can file complaints of corruption, plagiarism, and more.
Recommendations on combating corruption include:
●● collecting more data and conducting additional
research on corruption;
●● increasing the oversight and transparency of Ukraine's
institutions of higher education;
●● improving the reward and punishment mechanism
system for university employees;
●● standardizing exams in the written form; and
●● encouraging academic freedom.

Case Study:
Corruption in Ukrainian Higher Education

Snapshot: South Africa's First-Year University Students
70 percent were first-generation university students. Just 9 percent
were 18 years old, and almost 60 percent were 19 or 20 years old.
The survey results imply that the majority of first-year students
in South Africa are balancing both family and academic responsibilities, and many face the challenges of being the first in their
families to attend university, which often makes them vulnerable
to setbacks and higher dropout rates.
The survey canvassed students from nine of the country's 26
public universities to provide a fuller picture of students' backgrounds, the skills they bring into their university careers, and the
expectations they have of their education.
