All universities across Afghanistan reopened on Saturday, February 26, 2022, six months after they were closed upon the Taliban takeover on August 15, last year.

The universities that reopened on Wednesday are those in non-tropical provinces where the educational year normally starts in March.

It is worth mentioning that the universities are all public ones.

As per the new policy of the Ministry of Higher Education of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, not only co-education has ended in the universities but girls and boys go to universities in two different shifts.

In the Khost province, common people along with the Taliban affiliates arranged a welcoming gathering at the entrance of the province-based Shiekh Zayed University and gave the students wreath.

Earlier, public universities in all tropical provinces reopened over two weeks ago.

Meanwhile, high schools for girls that are still closed are supposed to reopen in March end as the educational year starts in the non-tropical provinces of Afghanistan.
