The National Council for Higher Education wishes to notify the general public that all higher education institutions, both public and private, are required to register with NCHE all new programmes and satellite centres before admitting students or commencing operations in those centres. The Council would also like to assure the public that it is doing everything possible to ensure that only registered institutions are operating and offering approved programmes in approved premises. The Council is therefore urging all prospective students, parents and guardians to access list of all registered institutions and programmes in Malawi before enrolling and to inform the Council if they are aware of unregistered institutions operating within their areas.
NCHE is committed to ensuring quality Higher Education in Malawi. To this end the Council has developed Minimum Standards for Higher Education Institutions and the Accreditation Evaluation Framework which are ready for use. Therefore, the Council shall commence assessment of all higher education institutions for accreditation within the first half of 2016.
