The Ministry of Higher Education said that it will review and revise the curriculum in light of Afghan culture, international educational standards, and Islamic law.
Ahmad Taqi, the spokesperson for this ministry, said that 35 academic curricula have already been finalized, and that a single academic curriculum will be set up across the entire country.
"We have adopted those international norms that we support and are working to align Afghanistan's curriculum with those norms so that we can compete with other countries in curriculum," Taqi said.
Meanwhile, some university professors and students said that the nation's universities' curricula haven't been updated in years.
"We expect that this process will be finished according to scientific, academic norms. This move of the Ministry of Higher Education is commendable,” said Fazelhadi Wazin, a university lecturer.
"The Ministry of Higher Education should make changes in the academic curriculum relating to fields,” said Safiullah Rahmani, a student.
According to statistics from the Ministry of Higher Education, there are 165 different educational curricula available nationwide, of which 20 bachelor's degree curricula and 15 master's degree curricula have already been finalized.
