Baresan University

Jaamacada Bare san is a private higher education institution which is non-political, non-partisan and non-sectarian. It was established in 2010. Baresan University was established at a time when young Somali secondary graduates could hardly get an opportunity to continue their education after secondary school due to the scarcity of tertiary education institutions in Somalia.

The collapse of the Somali state and the subsequent civil war(s) from the 1990s have altered most aspects of Somali lives ; but they have been particularly devastating in the area of education, where an entire generation has lost out on one of the most precious opportunities of childhood and adulthood. The restoration of regular schooling and universities are critical if Somalis expect to survive the present upheaval and envision a hopeful future.

The scheme to launch Baresan University was advanced by a group of intellectuals led by Dr Abdulrazak Adam Jimale. After more than five years of investigation and consultation the university began at the end of 2010.
