BOST UNIVERSITY SEEKS TO PROVIDE THE BEST EDUCATION FOR ITS STUDENT SUCCESS
Syllabus and textbooks are often the same as those used in similar courses taught in Afghanistan’s universities. As any other private institution of higher education, the Bost University is also working within the Afghanistan framework; and has developed a character of its own. This is in large part inspired by its sensitivity to the needs of the students’ populace in the Helmand province in which it operates. While the university’s faculties tend to be more teaching- than research-oriented, they often enjoy a professional status uncommon among academics. BU curriculums across its degree-granting disciplines are skill-directed and career-oriented. Everything, from academic advising to the approach to faculty-student interaction in and outside the classroom, in addition to career counseling, is implemented with attention to the needs of the individual student. It is for this reason that students capacity in classes are relatively small, and all faculties follow an “open door” policy with regard to consultation.

The Bost University remains convinced that since its opening in 1391-2012, it has made great strides towards developing a culture of excellence by combining the heritage of traditional Afghan education with those perspectives it has matured locally. The university looks forward to further collaboration with the local community in its continuous search for relevant educational programs delivered to global standards.
