Minister of Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development Professor Amon Murwira has revealed that the government has begun reviewing the curriculum framework for universities, teachers’ colleges and polytechnics. Said Murwira,
Ideally, a student studying Engineering at Nust and is in their second year must be able to transfer to MSU and continue from where they would have left. This would be possible if the board of knowledge is harmonised.
Our higher education system should also recognise prior learning. If one holds a national diploma or a higher national diploma, they should not be treated the same with someone who is coming straight from A-level.
One can’t be made to take courses that they would have passed already as if they were sleeping when they were at polytechnic or teachers’ college… Implementation will be gradual. Old students will continue with the old system while the new students will start learning under the new system.
