The Gollis University- Berbera branch campus was opened at November 2009 after the demand of higher education has intensified in Sahil region which was actually at that time far behind from the other Somaliland regions. This step has triggered a new start of educational change in the whole region as well.


It is advocating the replacement of the region’s backwardness in education and health into a modernity that can adequately prepare young Students to face new challenges unique to Somalia as a whole and particularly Sahil region. It is playing an important role to rebuild the society into a more educated and informed nation.

The Berbera Campus encourages the student’s individual approach to identify tomorrow’s problems by providing creative skills and design solutions.

The Gollis University – Berbera campus encompasses unique faculties that have a great value for our country, particularly in Sahil region.  The Berbera campus has six different faculties and two diplomas and they are:

This helps the students in the process of innovation, which is integral in producing knowledge and skills in all faculties.
