The paper attempts to investigate some methodological issues and the role of philosophy in improving the system of higher professional education in the context of the realities of modern society. In this case, the actual higher professional education received by specialists in higher educational institutions is considered but not the officially recognized system of higher education. The role of philosophy in performing various functions in training specialists in the system of higher education in different fields of social relations and in different types of human activity is emphasized. The worldview and methodological functions of philosophy are crucial in obtaining high knowledge in various specialties by students. The role of philosophy in the formation of a highly moral and comprehensively developed personality is substantiated, first of all, through its ideological, axiological and educational functions. The role of the formation of a high general educational level in the training of specialists in their further professional activities and further effect of these specialists on the moral and worldview principles of future colleagues and other people is emphasized. It is argued that as a result of the educational process and training, a person can acquire several specialties but only one real higher education, since higher education includes not only the professional qualities of a specialist, but also a high level of spirituality and personal development. In addition to a particular specialty, higher education implies mastering general cultural disciplines and philosophy.
