When judging Sudanese education system, lack of information is a problem. Judged from what is available, it appears that many of Sudan's universities lack central qualities associated with such institutions. An overstretch in new institutions cause the qualifications of teachers to be behind many MENA countries, and most institutions have limited facilities. Yet, the growth in recent years, reflect honest ambitions of the government, and what is in the making may be a institutions of increasingly better standard.
