Welcome to Kabul University Website


Kabul University is one of the ancient and main institutions of tertiary education in Afghanistan. Throughout; its background history since 1932 not only it has provided training to a huge number of Afghans but it has gained an immense reputation and popularity in the region by attracting the attention of students from neighborhood and developed countries. Kabul University (KU) has a rich culture, historical strength, and academic excellence even bypassing decades of wars and internal instabilities in Afghanistan.


Its vision is to transform Kabul University into an academic and a well-known international scientific and recognized institution for the variety of fields of education and scientific researches. This academic institution also includes a group of trained individuals who are involved in the implementation and supervision of academic and scientific topics. Therefore; Kabul University is a center for the creativity of creative community and a center of innovative thought and practice.


Its mission is to train and enable Afghan disciplined youth both male and female students to use the global scientific and academic resources and knowledge for the economic, cultural and historical aspects of Afghanistan to gain new knowledge by adhering to Islamic values ​​and democratic principles enshrined in the Afghan constitution.

Kabul University’s goal is to achieve the following objectives:

  • To develop qualified Afghans generations, aware of Islamic and cultural heritage of their nation.
  • To preserve the identity of Afghan society and its spiritual and social values;
  • To establish, promote, expand and maintain excellence in undergraduate and graduate programs.
  • To establish, developed and executed teaching system, research and scholarship.
  • To play an effective role in the development of academic; scientific; social and economic aspects of Afghan society as a part of global community.
  • To establish and maintain close relations with national and international Universities and institutions in academic and research fields.

A number of constraints and restrictions that prevented Kabul University from achieving and realization of its goals have been identified. However; some of the serious problems that Kabul University is facing include lack of enough required infrastructure such as classrooms, laboratories, libraries and lack of qualified teaching staff which has been the result of many years of war and destruction. Therefore; to achieve our vision, we must change the organization of the University in critical areas such as review and increase of the number of departments, reorganize the central administrations, prepare a long-term academic strategy and let it drive the physical planning of the University, orient the University around the goal of conception of a learning environment for teachers and students. Thus; all national and international friends, and Afghan expatriates are invited for their contribution to achieve the above objectives. And it is worth to mention that most of these objectives are already achieved by the hard-work of the authorities; professors; staff and students of this university.
