Govt To Abolish Irrelevant Degrees At State Universities

The government, through the Zimbabwe Council for Higher Education (ZIMCHE), is reviewing degree programmes offered at the country’s State universities.

This is being done to improve university curricula by abolishing useless degrees which create unemployable graduates.

In an interview with the Sunday Mail, Higher Education, Science and Technology Development Minister Professor Amon Murwira said:

What we are doing is we have silently radically reformed higher and tertiary education since last year, after our skills audit.

One of the things we did was to ensure that we have the Zimbabwe National Qualification Framework, which makes sure that our degrees equip graduates with knowledge and skill. We are, therefore, streamlining our education so that it results in that goal of producing goods and services.

We have some degree programmes which, when one completes the studies, that person cannot even do what he has learnt.

We promulgated three Statutory Instruments: SI 132 for higher education; SI 133, which caters for primary and secondary (education); and SI 137, which caters for the polytechnics.

These Statutory Instruments are there to ensure that all degrees have minimum bodies of knowledge and skill, meaning all degrees must result in goods and services.
