Private University Enrollment declined


Kabul: The Union of Private Universities in Afghanistan said that the number of students attending private universities has dropped by 50 percent since the political change in 2021.

The union said that the political change and the economic crisis are the main reasons for the decrease.

“Younger generations are hopeless about their future and their education and students have economic challenges and cannot pay their tuition fees,” said Gul Rahman Qazi, head of Qalam University.

Officials of the Union of Private Universities in Afghanistan said that due to economic problems and political changes, there has been a fifty percent decrease of students.

“Numbers of students have decreased by 50 percent due to the political changes and economic challenges,” said Mohammad Karim Naseeri, head of the media of the Union of Private University in Afghanistan. 

“After the Islamic Emirate takeover, educational opportunities have been facilitated in private and governmental universities and students can continue their studies with full confidence,” said Khaleddad Ahmad Taqi, a spokesman for the Ministry of Higher Education.

140 private and governmental universities are active across the country and now the number of the students has decreased.
