Starford university founder requests gov’t for masters’ license

By Kitab Unango

The founder of the Juba-based Starford International University, Gium Cyer Cyer has requested the South Sudan government to provide them with license to offer masters’ degree courses.

Cyer made his plea to the Minister of Higher Education, Changson Chang who was in attendance during graduation on Saturday of the third batch of undergraduate students at Dr. John Garang Mausoleum.

 Cyer argued that the university has qualified teaching staff capable of providing quality education for masters’ students.

“The Starford International University has attracted high qualified staff to meet the needs of the region and globe, why can’t you approve the masters’ degrees for our students?” he said.

On Saturday 367 undergraduate students acquired degrees in various courses.

 He said the delay to guarantee the license has impeded the university’s ambition to deliver quality education not only in South Susan but also in the region.

It remains unknown for how long the university has been waiting to acquire the license since it was established in 2016 as a private higher learning institution in South Sudan.

The university has four schools including social and economic, law, computer science and management.
