Welcome to the National Council for Higher Education (NCHE). By way of introduction, the NCHE was set up by an Act of Parliament and we invite you to view the Act in the resources section of this website. It is a great privilege to serve you through the mandate bestowed upon the Council as guardian of quality assurance in higher education institutions in the country, as a conduit for economic development.
Higher education has an integral part to play in strengthening human resource capacity to achieve the nation’s medium and long term strategic goals in economic development. That is why the Council is committed and continuously strives to fulfil its functions as provided by the law and thus ensure that we hold our higher education institutions accountable in providing high standards to the public.
This website is comprehensively designed to inform you, provide resources and act as a platform to solicit ideas, feedback and input, and also to serve as a knowledge sharing hub. You will be able to get the latest information on the status of higher education institutions, resources and guidelines on how to meet the required standards.
If you have any questions, if you would like to receive any information or documentation, or if you can give us any information, please contact us any time. We remain committed to ensuring and maintaining the highest standards in all our higher education institutions: we are here to help and invite you to join us in this endeavour.
