The Ministry of Higher Education said that the government universities would reopen for students soon.
The acting minister of higher education, Abdul Baqi Haqqani, said “the preparation and plans are being completed and soon the universities related to the Islamic Emirate will also be opened and the education will continue.”
When the Taliban seized power nearly two months ago, all universities were closed, but private universities have since reopened.
“We have seen this many times: They say they are working on a plan, but it has been over a month and the plan has not finalized,” said Omid Mawllavi Zada, a political science student at Kabul University.
The Ministry of Higher Education on Wednesday signed an agreement with the union of private universities to facilitate educational opportunity for students.
The agreement calls for scholarships offering tuition discounts from 20 percent to 60 percent for 60,000 students at universities in the capital and provinces.
The head of the union, Ahmad Tariq Kamal, said: “We will provide partial scholarships or discounted fees of 20 percent to 60 percent for qualified students. 60,000 students would be served by this, across fields of study.
