Chancellor's Message

About us

I am pleased to welcome you to Bakhtar University (BU). Bakhtar University is one of the oldest private Universities of Afghanistan. Since its establishment in 2005, BU strives for excellence. As the University of Opportunity, we attempt to give all of our students the best possible learning experience. At BU, we are extremely proud of our reputation for quality teaching and research. During your time here you will learn from national and international academics who are leading experts and experienced researchers in their field, allowing you to explore the very latest thinking in your subject. We are also extremely proud of the unique atmosphere on campus and I believe it will make your time at BU a special and highly memorable experience. We will continue to build on our enviable reputation for a fusion of innovation, creativity and technology; precisely the characteristics that make us and our graduates sought after by local, regional and international employers. Employability is at the heart of all our courses, and we are striving to give our students the best chances in their professional life. It is a testimony to our students and staff that over 75% of our graduates are in employment within six to eight months of graduating. Our goal is to educate you as a whole person and we recognize that some of the important lessons you will learn will take place outside the lecture theatre, the laboratory, and the library. Therefore, over the past twelve years, BU not only invested in intellectual talent but has also spent more than $ 5 M to develop the campus, ensuring our facilities match and contribute to our endeavor for excellence. We aim to give you the opportunity to learn in a safe and exciting environment. At the end of your studies you will leave this University with not only a world-class qualification, but you will also leave with friends that you will cherish for a lifetime. I hope your studies with us at the University are inspiring, challenging and lead you on to the great things you aspire to. Best of luck with your studies, and I am certain that your time at BU will be worthwhile- fruitful and enjoyable. With best personal wishes,
Dr. Bari Rahman,
Chancellor, BU.
