A University in Moldova Closes Down! Students Will Be Able to Transfer to Other Educational Institutions

The Ministry of Education and Research has announced that the Slavic University in Moldova will suspend its activities. The founders made the decision during the general assembly of the private university. The resolution was passed in the May 20 meeting, and students will have the opportunity to transfer to other universities to continue their studies in related fields.

The Ministry of Education suspended the university’s activities due to its failure to obtain accreditation for its undergraduate and master’s programs despite repeated warnings. The university administration voluntarily requested the National Agency for Quality Assurance in Education and Research to withdraw accreditation for its programs in “Business and Management,” “Logistics Marketing,” “Psychology,” and “IT.”

The Slavic University in Moldova, established in 1997, trained specialists in the humanities and economics. The institution was also associated with the “Sveatoci” high school, active since 1999. Over the last two years, the university experienced significant financial losses and saw a steady decline in its assets.


Currently, the university employs 26 staff members, but the official statement did not specify the exact number of students. This institution is one of four private universities that have decided not to admit new students this year, aligning with other higher education institutions such as the Institute of Criminal Sciences and Applied Criminology, the International Management Institute IMI-NOVA, and the American University.

Oleg Babenco, who founded the Slavic University in Moldova, previously held government positions, including head of the Bureau of Interethnic Relations from 2017 to 2018.
