A private university will cease operations due to financial crisis.
In a statement released on Wednesday, the University of Afghanistan announced it has ceased operations due to economic problems and a lack of students.
“We would like to point out that due to the many economic problems caused by the dropout of students and the prohibition of girls’ education, the founding board of the University of Afghanistan has decided to sell or, if not, to suspend the university,” stated the announcement of this educational institution. “Consequently, the university will cease operations at the beginning of the next academic year.”
In addition, the institution has set a deadline for students to complete their dissertations by spring.
This is despite the fact that after the implementation of gender segregation order on male and female students and the complete ban on university education for girls, most private universities have faced economic problems due to the lack of students.
In the most recent order, the Taliban banned female students from taking entrance exams in educational institutions.
