For the 2024-2025 academic year, new baccalaureate graduates will once again be oriented to private higher education establishments. The unitary framework of private higher education establishments in Senegal (Cudopes) made this known yesterday, Friday May 24, during a workshop organized as a prelude to a seminar on higher education

Private higher education establishments will once again welcome new high school graduates. The announcement was made yesterday, Friday May 24, on the sidelines of a workshop on the concerns of private higher education organized by the Unitary Framework of Private Higher Education Establishments of Senegal (Cudopes). “There is an initial orientation of students at the private level. There is a debt owed by the government but we know that it is in a good position to pay this debt without it being a conditionality. We now want to participate in the absorption of baccalaureate graduates because every year, there are new baccalaureate graduates who arrive at the higher education level and public universities are overloaded. Private universities would like to provide a qualitative offer which makes it possible to absorb this surplus of baccalaureate graduates and to give all Senegalese students the same chance of finding a job,” declared the coordinator of Cudopes, Dr Jean Marie Sène.

Returning to the amount of the debt, he underlined: “During the last discussions, it was less than 10 billion and they (government) are in the process of taking stock to verify, or is there nothing does not have this debt also which is a fictitious debt”.

Indeed, the workshop is organized as a prelude to the seminar on higher education in Senegal with the Mesri scheduled for next week. “We decided to organize a workshop to talk about the problem of private education in Senegal. The Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation (Mesri) asked us to produce a program document in order to integrate it into the strategic framework that they are putting in place to find solutions to higher education in general in Senegal. We know that higher education in Senegal has some difficulties and the workshop that we are doing is to allow the private sector to propose solutions to the government so that it can integrate them within the framework of a general program,” said the Cudopes coordinator.

The discussion workshop, which brought together key players in the education sector, was also an opportunity to discuss the major issues in higher education.
