The University of Botswana (also known as Basco or UB) was established in 1982 and was the country’s first institute of higher education.

However, it began life as a colonial Catholic vocational training university in 1946, before becoming a joint, cross-national higher education institution in 1966, when Botswana and Lesotho gained independence. Since the university became autonomous in 1982, it has become a key player in the country’s development and has maintained its combination of high academic standards and social progressiveness ever since.

It has three campuses: one in Maun, one in Francistown and one in the capital city Gaborone. UB comprises six faculties: business, education, engineering, humanities, science and social sciences.
