In the framework of PITA program, CCIIR for the second time, campaigned to promote the recruitment process of non-Georgian school leavers who are willing to continue their studies at higher education institutions.
The aim of the informational meetings was to provide the target audience with detailed information about "Quota System in Georgia" introduced at higher education institutions by Ministry of Education of Georgia in the framework of "an Affirmative Action Policy” towards ethnic minority entrants. Through the quota system non-Georgian university entrants can take exam on their native language only in general skills. Upon passing the threshold, they become students of one-year Georgian language program (1+4 program) and pursue studying at BA level (after completing the program - accumulating 60 credits). The implementation of the policy is one of the major instruments to promote equality and increase access to higher education at Georgian state universities.
Recruiting campaign for non-Georgian school leavers was held in Kvemo Kartli and Samtskhe-Javakheti regions.
