In September 2014, a new Higher Education Act, which significantly expanded the autonomy of the university and provided a real opportunity for the unification of Ukrainian and European educational space, was passed in Ukraine. New rules of work should improve the quality of education and make national universities competitive worldwide. At the same time, the educational institutions face numerous problems of transition, which should be solved as soon as possible. The issues that require a coordinated approach for the majority of higher education universities are analyzed within the paper.
