The time when the majority of graduates were all moving to public universities in Côte d’Ivoire is now over. The repeated strikes in these establishments and the various incidents related to the violence that often take place there are not without consequences. Academic years that last twice as long in some faculties have led to the detour of new students, who are increasingly pushed back to private universities.
The results of the orientations of the new graduates were revealed on October 25, 2017. According to these results, 61,818 bachelors out of 82,363 chose to continue their studies in private universities. Only 25% or 20,545 have opted for one of the 7 public universities available in the country.
The figures released by the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research announce that 82,363 applications for bachelor graduates have been processed for the 2017-2018 school year.
As every year, new graduates are invited to visit the www.orientationsup.net platform to find out where they have been oriented for their university studies.
These results come a few weeks after the release of Kouamé Affoué Denature, Seka Apo Cathérine and Gnatanou Nanou Virginie. These three students had been arrested and referred to the MACA (House arrest and Correction Abidjan). The facts go back to September 14 during a march of FESCI.
