The idea of opening the university college in Somaliland capital Hargeisa was firstly born by young and educated groups of intellectuals of both countries after assessing the countries education sector as well as the need for higher education institution. Somaliland, as a country of devastated from civil wars, is still recovering from the aftermath of the civil strife which resulted in total destruction of all public institutions. The education sector was destroyed like other physical and institutional infrastructures during the years of the civil wars. Reports of many non-governmental and UN agencies on education sector in Somaliland indicate that this sector is thriving due to public and private efforts and the city of Hargeisa is considered the cultural and economic centre on top of being the political capital of Somaliland.
Education system in Somaliland consists of primary and secondary schools at the end of which students that complete requirement are awarded high school Diploma to seek higher education should they wish to continue their post secondary education.
After the return of refugees and internally displaced people to urban centers, an earnest effort led by teachers and the public in general has begun in reopening schools. There are a number of vocational schools that run by the Ministry of education. There are also a number of private Colleges that provide various trainings though no effective regulations with respect to the standards of the curriculum that these institutions teach. Admas University College Hargeisa Main Campus is among this privately owned Higher Institution operating in Somaliland.
