Red Sea University, Bosaso
Bosaso city and a branch campus in Galkaio city, both in Puntland state of Somalia.
The history of RSU goes back to the year 2000 when a team of professors and eminent scholars from Bosaso and Mogadishu set out to establish a campus for Mogadishu University (MU) in Bosaso. They were alive to the rising number of high school graduates every year and whose dream for college education could not be realised owing to lack of institutions offering quality higher education. However, it was only in 2008 that MU eventually managed to officially open the gates to university education in Puntland by launching an affiliate campus in Bosaso.
RSU was officially registered by the Ministry of Education and Higher Studies on 5th January 2017. A public announcement ceremony was held in a large community gathering with guests from universities including MU, government officials, students and community leaders attending. In line with its quality academic services and sound administration.
RSU is currently offering undergraduate, post-graduate and diploma programs. As in December 2016, enrolment stood at more than 2000 students across the various programs.
