It gives me much pleasure to not only welcome you but to introduce you to the academic aspects of the University of Juba. We are the oldest University in South Sudan, and in fact, do predate the Republic of South Sudan. We were established through a presidential decree in 1975. Two years later, 1977, the University opened its doors to teaching.  We are the largest university in South Sudan. There are four other public universities in South Sudan. The University of Juba is still larger than all the other four put together. We are the preferred University of choice for most South Sudanese applicants.

The founding colleges of the University are Education, Natural Resources and Environmental Studies, Economic and Social Studies, and the then Adult Education and Training. Over the years we established, among others, the School of Medicine, Engineering and Architecture, Law, Business and Management, Computer Science and Information Technology. 

As part of our mandate to supply the necessary human resources needed for the development of South Sudan, the University of Juba is continuously looking for new areas to harness and develop. As a result, in the last two years, we established the School of Veterinary Medicine, Mathematics, Medical Laboratory Sciences, and Architecture, Land Management, Urban and Regional Planning.  The department of Architecture was with Engineering. It has just been moved to be part of this new and innovative School.  We have established an interesting postgraduate programme in Disaster Risk Management and Food Resiliency, housed by the School of Natural Resources and Environmental Studies. This is a regional programme established in collaboration with universities in Netherland, Ethiopia, and Somaliland. In the pipeline are the Schools of Pharmacology, Public Health and Nursing, and Petroleum and Mining.

The bulk of the programmes being run by the University of Juba are academic in nature, leading to the awards of Diploma, Bachelors, PGD, Masters and PhDs. The National Transformational Leadership Institute (NTLI) runs a number of short courses in peace building at grassroot levels to empower, especially women.

The University is also involved in extramural programmes. We have, for example, Kuajok Community College in Warrap State that runs several Diploma courses in a number of fields. Kuajok Community College will soon launch an LLB programme. In addition, the School of Education is affiliated to several teacher training institutes in the country. This is part of the University’s modest attempt to raise and harmonise the standard of teacher training in the country.

Our student population stands just under 30,000 currently. Our master plan speaks of reaching 60,000 in the next couple of years. This expansion is being hampered, among other things, by the poor physical infrastructure.
