On one side the state of research, flawed. What the state budget he spends this question What is its share in GDP compared to other countries, there is no doubt that if you take a test like the books published, patents filed, articles published in specialized journals, the University of Algeria is not the weight, especially as the number of research centers, laboratories, specialized journals, is highly significant.
As for the academic attrition, it is also significant. How many students do not finish their studies and leave without any qualifications When a manager says that 15,000 graduates emerge each year of the Algerian university, what about all those who drop courses during the journey.
The reality of the figures is this: among those taking makeshift boats to cross the Mediterranean, the considerable number of academics, preferring to be eaten by fish, which continue to languish in their own country. It’s terrible, but true.
Why is it that the Algerians who are marginalized in their countries do they get their game as soon as they are supported by foreign universities. In France alone, there have been a staggering 20,000 students.
According to Philippe Georges, Counsellor of Cooperation and Cultural Action with the Embassy of France in Algiers, some 12,878 Algerian students established in 2007 an application to conduct studies in France.
Only 3,207 were selected. It is already a considerable figure. The big problem is that most students who leave Algeria in France do not return home after their studies. They probably chose the best solution.
Because for those returning, it’s a real uphill battle begins, both for equivalency at the Ministry of Higher Education, as to fit into the structures of the Algerian university, which is become the preserve in the hands of certain circles.
