Several universities and experts have expressed their positive view of the reform, calling it a progressive move. Speaking at a policy coordination meeting on Friday, Nadiem said that all state and private universities with minimum B-level accreditation and have signed a cooperation agreement with top global universities would have greater autonomy in creating new programs, with the exception of programs in education and health studies.
