The higher houses that were licensed by the Sunedu, (National Superintendence of Higher University Education), decided to close 1,416 study programs between undergraduate, postgraduate and second specialties. Meanwhile, 22 universities that are under evaluation, made a similar decision, so they agreed to withdraw 2,304 study programs in their curricular meshes to offer an education with optimal quality to the students.
The students of the universities that did not obtain a license, will not be harmed, and that is that the Ministry of Education (Minedu), said that students with good academic performance and who are of low resources, may request their transfer to other public universities.
For this, the Minedu will provide the necessary resources to expand vacancies so that they can continue with their studies. In addition, they may benefit from benefits such as scholarships or validations. This measure will be applied mainly in regions such as Lima, Ayacucho, Áncash, and Arequipa, which have more universities in which they were not granted the institutional license.
However, at least 2,600 students do not have similar careers to move, and that puts the continuity of their studies at risk.
On the other hand, before the imminent closing of several universities – between public and private – by Sunedu, it established as a term until February of this year, to grant the institutional license to 23 universities of different cities of our country.
It should be noted that the Peruvian University of Las Americas, is so far, the last house of studies that Sunedu denied the license. Therefore, it is prevented from offering new admission processes.
While the Lord of Sipán University (USSIPAN), located in Chiclayo, Lambayeque, compiled, step by step, with all the guidelines that Sunedu assigned to said university.
To date, 86 superior houses have the institutional licensing, while 35 universities were denied the license and must complete any service in a term not exceeding 2 years.
