Thanks to its historical circumstances and geographical position north of the Balkan Peninsula, on the Lower Danube River and bordering the Black Sea, Romanian culture is a unique mix of Central and Eastern European elements, with Roman, Greek, and Slavic influences.
Higher education in Romania has undergone deep structural changes in the past decades, having changed from a state-controlled system before 1990 to a more competitive one with a larger number of students and growing research activities and presence in the international academic community. The quality of the higher education sector is expected to improve in the coming years due to legislated educational reforms and increased funding. The Fulbright Program in Romania started in 1960 and has contributed to the democratization of the country. The Program is highly appreciated and valued in Romania.
