Bedir Education and Medical Foundation Trust – Malawi will this September start offering tertiary education at its Kanjedza Office Complex in Blantyre.
The Trust’s Chairman, Rajab Mkakosya, said the discussions with the National Council for Higher Education (NCHE) on the matter are currently at an advanced stage.
Mkakosya said the team which will be managing the university applied to NCHE in March last year and in May 2017, officials from NCHE visited the university campus for preliminary viewing.
“The tertiary learning institution shall be known as University of Southern Africa. What has remained now is for NCHE to come again for assessment and other things. We are aiming to open by September 2017 if all goes on well. What I can say now is, we are very much prepared for the establishment of the university,” he said.
Currently, the trust has Bedir High Schools which has over 600 learners from their three campuses in Blantyre and Lilongwe.
In Malawi, Bedir was founded in the year 2000 but is found in over 160 countries worldwide.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
