The committee chairman further said that the draft law also envisages granting educational credit and debt repayment after the beginning of the career of doctoral students.


Under the draft law, the state will ensure preferential and long-term credits regarding the educational fee and other educational expenses, and a new mechanism will be created for payment of debts of doctoral students who will be employed in future.
