Ministry of Higher Education of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan separated weekdays of male and female students of universities in Kabul University and Kabul Polytechnic University in a bid to further end co-education.
Based on the new timetable for the universities, three days of the week are allocated for all-female students during which no boy will be attending classes while the remaining three days will be given to boys with no girl presence.
Spokesperson of the ministry Ahmad Taqi in a video clip said the decision was made after the academic council of the University of Kabul suggested to so that the students have enough time for practical activities and scientific research.
The timetable will only be implemented at the University of Kabul and Kabul Polytechnic University at the moment and will be in effect in May.
Previously, the Taliban had ended co-education in universities and had separated their times as girls would attend morning classes and boys were given the afternoon shift.
This comes as secondary schools for girls across Afghanistan are yet to be reopened.
