This profile summarises the higher education landscape in Angola in recent years as the country tries to consolidate the gains of a peaceful settlement of the protracted civil war and embarks on a process of national reconstruction and socio-economic development. The role of higher education in these processes was reiterated recently by the Angolan President, José Eduardo dos Santos, who defended the changes currently taking place in the higher education system, arguing that ‘the revision of the educational system that we implement aims to reorientate the courses according to the needs of development of the country and its provinces and regions’ (AngolaPress 2012c).
