The Tanzania Commission for Universities has improved its application procedures through the central admission system to enable students with ordinary diploma to make online application to any university in the country.

TCU Deputy Executive Secretary Prof. Magashi Mgasa said the new improvements in the system will enable students with NTA level 6 (diploma), teachers with cellage education and form six leavers who finished their education between 1988 and 2010 to apply as indirect applicants using the central admission system effective this academic year.

Prof. Mgasa was briefing journalists yesterday on the seventh High Education Science and Technology Exhibition which commence today in Dar es Salaam where by about 65 local universities in the country and many other universities across the world will take part.

He said however that applicants with similar qualifications but finished their education studies between 2010 and 2012 will be allowed to apply as direct applicants using the system.

“Previous we only allowed fresh students and continuous students to apply to TCU using the central admission system…this improvement will come into effective this year,” he said.

The TCU deputy executive secretary added that only those students with diploma certificates from institutions not recognized by NACTE will proceed applying directly to the universities of their choice.

The exhibition, which will be held for three days, is expected to be opened by Vice-President Dr. Mohammed Gharib Bilal.

The exhibition, according to the organizers the anzania Commission for Universities, aimed at creating awareness to the community and other stakeholders on the role of higher education institutions in generating knowledge through science, technology and innovation.

Prof. Mgasa said there had been a lot of research results and technological developments in higher education institutions in the country but “these developments will not be useful if they are confined in the university gates.”

With the researches available, he said, the government and the entire varsities in the country had the great role to involve the local people in the country by redefining and giving meaning to different research results availed to the institutions.

“The exhibition is a forum for academia to interact and form links with industry and the public at large. We hope it will also be an opportunity to enhance corroboration and partnership between higher education institutions and industry as well,” he said, adding that this year’s exhibition has the theme ‘Empowering communities through science, technology and innovation’.
