MCTES Publishes Ranking of the Best Higher Education Institutions

The Ministry of Science, Technology and Higher Education (MCTES) plans to publish a ranking of accredited Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in Mozambique from next year.

According to the MCTES, the initiative aims to guide students in identifying where to enrol in order to guarantee training with acceptable quality standards.

The information was recently provided by the Deputy Minister of Science, Technology and Higher Education, Edson Macuácua, during the VI Graduation Ceremony of the Higher Institute of Management, Commerce and Finance (ISGECOF), held recently in Maputo.

Macuácua explains that the materialisation of this goal involves the institutionalisation of systemic self-evaluation in the HEIs, i.e. each institution must self-evaluate and guarantee accreditation of the courses taught.

“Bringing their organisation and operation into line with the new regulatory framework for the higher education subsystem and improving the training of teaching staff in different areas of specialisation and at the psycho-pedagogical level are the sector’s priorities for 2024,” said Macuácua, quoted in a statement from the MCTES.

In fact, there is an urgent need to consolidate the implementation of internal quality assurance units, capable of coordinating and monitoring the quality of teaching in each institution.

According to the Vice-Minister, human capital is crucial for the country’s progress, since it is through scientific knowledge that natural resources are transformed into wealth and well-being is created.

Moreover, HEIs have a responsibility to train staff in the different areas of knowledge with the necessary quality in order to meet the demands of society and knowledge.

To this end, it is important that HEIs continue to raise their standards of excellence in the fields of teaching, research, extension and innovation.

In this regard, HEIs are challenged to develop teaching based on standards of competence and orientated towards the logic of demand, economically and socially relevant teaching that enables employability and the insertion of graduates into the market.
