Decades of war have largely destroyed the education system in Afghanistan, but this nation has made impressive advances in this department over the past few years. Despite this, there are limited options for foreigners students seeking a study programme in Afghanistan. The country is home to several higher education institutions, and the American University of Afghanistan, in Kabul, offers classes in English.

The American University of Afghanistan is Afghanistan’s only private, not-for-profit, non-partisan and co-educational university. It opened its doors in 2006 with an initial enrollment of 50 students, and today enrolls more than 1,700 full and part-time students. It has produced 29 Fulbright Scholars and maintains partnerships with the world’s most prestigious universities, including Stanford University, Georgetown University, and the University of California network.

The best chance of finding a study programme in Afghanistan is by checking with your home university to see if there are any affiliate programmes. In some cases, namely in the US, scholarships are offered to those wishing to study in Afghanistan. Additionally, you might also be able to find Pashto or Dari programmes, which are the two official languages, study programmes.

Those who wish to pursue a study programme with an academic institution in Afghanistan will be required to obtain a student visa.
