Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research of Libya


Established in 2006, the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research of Libya is the government ministry responsible for overseeing and regulating higher education, research and innovation in Libya. Its mission is to develop and promote high-quality tertiary education and research, foster innovation and entrepreneurship and enhance the skills and capabilities of the Libyan workforce.

The ministry is responsible for formulating policies, strategies and plans for higher education, research and innovation in Libya. It also regulates and monitors the quality of higher education institutions and programs in the country, ensures that they are aligned with the needs of the labor market and promotes internationalization and collaboration with institutions abroad.

In addition, the ministry provides financial support and scholarships to Libyan students to study abroad, promotes scientific research and development and supports the transfer of technology and knowledge from academia to industry.

However, Libya's education system, including higher education, has been heavily impacted by the ongoing conflict and political instability in the country. Many universities and academic institutions have been damaged or destroyed and many students and scholars have been displaced or unable to continue their studies. The ministry continues to work under challenging conditions to provide access to education and support research and innovation in the country.

Despite these challenges, the ministry plays an important role in rebuilding and developing Libya's education system, which is essential for the country's long-term stability and prosperity. The ministry collaborates with universities and other higher education institutions in the country to improve the quality of education and research and to create opportunities for Libyan students and scholars.
