MoHE enforces new curriculum
 For improving of quality of higher educations and their curriculum, the Ministry of Higher Educations (MoHE) has undertaken planning on both public and private universities. In an interview with The Kabul Times reporter, spokeswoman of the MoHE Arifa Paikar said at the moment that MoHE is working on improvement of teaching quality of private and public universities. Fortunately six private universities managed to meet assessment and reputation criterions of MoHE successfully and distribute diploma for their graduates.
Ms. Paikar added, we are working on revision of curriculum of private and public universities. During winter most lecturers were involved in this mission and this process has developed relatively under the international expert.
She added, in the past only the text of the curriculum was changed and an old curriculum was replaced by a new one but now private and public universities contact with labor market and make need assessment to find the market capacity and society need.
 Then they coordinate with government bodies as well as with previously graduated students of private and public universities to share their opinions for preparing a new applicable curriculum.
She continued, at the moment we have 130 private institutes of higher education out of which six universities managed to meet assessment criterions. If the rest managed to pass this assessment successfully, their graduates would have access to diploma. 
There is no difference between diplomas of private or public universities only their name changes and they have same validity.
She added, we are working on a new system of entrance examination recruitment to introduce students to private and public universities.
Talking on MoHE future plans, Paikar said, our future plans include revision of curriculum, improvement of academic researches, establishment of an independent department of quality guarantee and validation, improvement of role of technology and teaching process, war on corruption, improvement of transparency.
