Bulgaria's universities are going to boost their admission numbers by 10% in order to meet demands on the labor market.

Bulgaria's Ministry of Education and Science has announced that the Bulgarian higher education institutions will admit almost 66 900 students for the 2009/2010 school year, which is 6 300 more than last year's numbers.

According to the Ministry, the admissions boost is taking into account the needs of the labor market, and the present number of unemployed university graduates.

The Ministry is aiming at encouraging the latest high-tech majors by increasing the admissions into IT and computer science majors by 25%, and into communications and computer hardware by 10%.

No new universities or colleges have been opened in Bulgaria in the last year, according to the Ministry.
