He noted that the government's actions would not affect current students and questioned student sincerity.

Giro-Szasz called the current university situation untenable, charged that there were too many dropouts, and that unemployment among college graduates had increased over 3.5-fold, from 8,400 in 2002 to 30,400 in 2010.

He blamed the quality and structure of higher education, and said that education quality had to improve and admissions had to decline so the ratio of students admitted who actually graduated would increase.

He argued that low-interest loans were available for students who couldn't afford the tuition.
The Trade Union Association of Professionals issued a statement rejecting the idea of cutting admissions and scholarships.
