WELCOME TO THE MINISTRY’S WEBSITE
I wish to welcome you to the Ministry of Higher Education Website. The Ministry of Higher Education was established through Government Gazette No. 836 of 2016 to formulate policy and regulate University Education and Vocational Education and Training. The Ministry is also mandated with the promotion and application of Science, Technology and Innovation for socio-economic development.
In executing its mandate, the Ministry aims to increase equitable access to quality, effective and efficient Education and Skills Training. The Ministry also aims to promote research and innovation in Science and Technology in order to enhance commercialisation and uptake of research and innovation products to the market. This mandate places the Ministry at the heart of the human development process and is therefore critical to the country’s industrialization agenda that will transform the nation into a knowledge-based middle income country by 2030.
