THE UNITED REPUBLIC OF TANZANIA

Executive Secretary

It is my pleasure and gratitude to welcome you to our website. We at Tanzania Commission for Universities (TCU) trust that you will find this website superbly informative, educative and appealing to the high growing demand for knowledge about university education in Tanzania and beyond. READ MORE

Under Regulation 47 (1) (c), (e) and (f)of the Universities (General) Regulation, G.N 226 of 2013, no person or institution, whether local or foreign shall without the express approval of the Commission advertise to offer any university level award, organize exhibitions on university education or recruit students in the United Republic of Tanzania to join foreign university institution.

 

In recent years, Tanzania has experienced establishment of Overseas Students’ Recruitment Agencies (OESRA) to help enroll students in foreign universities. However, this sector has been unregulated as there was no documented information on their registration and accreditation status as well as guidelines and criteria for the services rendered by such agencies.

 

In view of aforesaid, TCU has established guidelines that require every agency intending to carry out an overseas education students recruitment to lodge their applications for registration to TCU. The aim is to ensure quality of graduate recruited by these agencies as well be satisfied that students are admitted in institutions which deliver higher education of high quality.
