The ministerial entity says, in a press release, that situations of non-compliance with the rules for access to higher education courses were registered in some higher education institutions, in the academic year 2022-2023, and sanctioning measures were applied.
According to the Angolan Ministry of Higher Education, Science, Technology and Innovation (MESCTI), in relation to access for the academic year 2023-2024, information has reached the body about “inadequate practices and anomalies” that “call into question the seriousness of the process of access and suitability” of the sector’s institutions.
MESCTI assures, on the other hand, that it will, “immediately, investigate and identify the nature of such practices and, if confirmed, sanctioning measures will be adopted and managers who have disrespected the law will be held responsible, as well as the beneficiaries of such practices ”.
It also requests citizens, members of the academic community, authorities and candidates for higher education to report acts or practices that violate the rules of the access process so that the Ministry can act to prevent the occurrence of irregularities and penalize offenders , as soon as actions contrary to the law are identified.
Higher Education institutions have 230,252 places available for the 2023-2024 academic year, as reported last August by the Secretary of State for Higher Education, Eugénio Alves da Silva.
The 2023-2024 academic year is scheduled to start in October.
