Midlands State University

Midlands State University is a University in Zimbabwe offering different courses mainly in the commercial and arts sector. The University was previously called Gweru Teachers' College, which was primarily a teacher training college under the University of Zimbabwe. For the first three years, the curriculum was detected by the University of Zimbabwe but now is operating independently.

The commercial degrees are modelled from the University of South Africa curriculum. It offers various degrees in commerce with specialization in different fields such as accounting (Chartered Accountant route), finance, quantitative analysis, marketing, business management, etc.

The main campus is located in Senga area, south east of Gweru central about 15 km (9.3 mi). The road leading to the main campus is poorly developed. It is very close to Fletcher Boys High School, one of the top high schools in terms of academic excellency in Zimbabwe.

Famous quotes containing the words university, midlands and/or state:

    Like dreaming, reading performs the prodigious task of carrying us off to other worlds. But reading is not dreaming because books, unlike dreams, are subject to our will: they envelop us in alternative realities only because we give them explicit permission to do so. Books are the dreams we would most like to have, and, like dreams, they have the power to change consciousness, turning sadness to laughter and anxious introspection to the relaxed contemplation of some other time and place.
    Victor Null, South African educator, psychologist. Lost in a Book: The Psychology of Reading for Pleasure, introduction, Yale University Press (1988)

    Sunday night meant, in the dark, wintry, rainy Midlands ... anywhere where two creatures might stand and squeeze together and spoon.... Spooning was a fine art, whereas kissing and cuddling are calf-processes.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)

    We are living in a demented world. And we know it. It would not come as a surprise to anyone if tomorrow the madness gave way to a frenzy which would leave our poor Europe in a state of distracted stupor, with engines still turning and flags streaming in the breeze, but with the spirit gone.
    Johan Huizinga (1872–1945)
