In 1995, the Government made a decision to address the problem of the shortage of science teachers locally by setting up a University of Science Education. The Bindura University College of Science Education was established under the University of Zimbabwe. Arrangements were made for it to be housed at the Provincial Public Service Training Centre in Bindura. The College finally opened on 26 March 1996 with an intake of 125 students. Among the lecturing staff, were five lecturers from Cuba. This development coincided with and was partly, a consequence of the termination of the Zimbabwe-Cuba Science Teacher Training programme which had begun operating in the mid-1980s. The University Council then set up a Planning Committee, which was charged with the responsibility of transforming the College into a University within a period of less than five years.

Web Address

The Catholic University of Zimbabwe is experiencing growth in line with its 2013-2022 strategic plan. The focus is to have 10 000 students by the end of the year 2022. The University now has 1 000 students. This is a 257% growth from 280 students at the beginning of 2013. Some of the growth has been realized due to the introduction of the very popular Block Release program for professionals where students can study for their B.A dual honours over a four year period at very competitive prices. This program is available at the Harare Campus as well as the Bulawayo, Mutare and Chinhoyi Campuses. The Bulawayo, Mutare and Chinhoyi Campuses are new and they also contributed to the phenomenal growth in student numbers as the decentralisation of Campuses has brought convenience for students across the Country and in the Region. Three more Campuses will be opened by the end of 2014.

While the Great Zimbabwe University grows into a fully fledged institution of higher learning that will cover a full range of disciplines, it seeks to play a major role in the restoration and preservation of culture and in using culture as the basis upon which to build the future within the context of local and globalimperatives.The University’s curriculum reflects those elements that promote African culture, reinforce the dignity and self-confidence of Africans, and underpin the national unity of Zimbabweans. The birth of the Great Zimbabwe University (GZU) therefore heralds a new era in higher education, a period whose hallmark should see the Zimbabwe education system covering an increasing range of modern disciplines while being sufficiently and firmly anchored to local culture and restoring the confidence of indigenous Africans to apply and exploit their own creative genius in the modern competitive world. Everyone at the GZU is ready to help students to build a career.

The idea of a University in the Midlands dates back to the foundation of the National University of Science and Technology when Gweru, which was identified as a possible site for a second university campus in the country, lost its bid to Bulawayo. Two other opportunities to host institutions of higher learning (the Open University and the Catholic University) were also missed by the Midlands Province, when the two universities went to Harare instead. It was in the midst of such disappointments that two initiatives gradually converged to give birth to what has since become the Midlands State University. His Excellency, the President R G Mugabe, on the nudging of the Provincial political leadership of the Midlands, accepted to the idea of a national university being built in the Midlands.
