After months of suspension, Afghan public universities have reopened. We visited Kabul University and spoke with a number of teachers and students. They say they are happy returning to the campus and hope good educational days are ahead.

Male and female students are returning to Kabul University but in different shifts. Moreover, new rules and changes are brought by the new directors. Some experts say it is not all about reopening, and there are many challenges left on the way of higher education in Afghanistan.

Like most public universities, Kabul University was closed in the immediate aftermath of the Taliban takeover. Formerly, the university had remained shut for some months due to Covid-19 pandemic.

The reopening of universities has brought hope to the younger generation in Afghanistan. Students, here, say this process must be supported in advance, so that they can continue their education this year successfully.
