Year, pages: 2017, 313 - 337
Keywords: faculties, geography of education, higher education, neoliberalization, universities, Slovakia
The aim of the study is to discuss the conceptual frame of the neoliberalization of higher education, to point out the changing legal provisions accompanying the progressive adoption of neoliberal principles in the management of higher education institutions in Slovakia, as well as to point out the data sources concerning higher education and to analyze some parameters of the existing system in Slovakia and their dynamics after 1989. Particularly, the development of the institutional structure (universities, faculties and detached sites), the development of the number of students by groups of study fields, their spatial distribution, financing and the education and research performance of public higher education institutions are addressed. The quoted parameters are tracked in different time intervals after 1989. The geographical aspects are applied to the study of spatial distribution of tracked parameters by NUTS 2, NUTS 3 regions, higher education centres, and in some cases, faculty centres.
