    However, Barise predicted that going forward, the high number of universities would spark competition, which would promote and enhance quality – institutions would have to raise their game in order to attract and retain students.

    “In such an environment the strong ones will survive whereas the weak will fall by the wayside,” he explained.

    Moreover, a Somali Research and Education Network has been established by some Somali universities to develop common standards and set benchmarks, aiding self-regulation and organising peer reviews to influence positive growth.
