Students at Zimbabwe’s colleges and universities are having a torrid time as they are failing to raise money to pay tuition and related costs.

It becomes worse when students finish their studies as the job market is shrinking due to company closures owing to the harsh economic environment in the country.

But is there any future for university and college graduates?

For perspective, Studio 7 reached a former Zimbabwean student, Hatinawedu Mupiwa, who recently completed science and mathematics studies in America, and Dumisani Muyambo Machinjirise of Great Zimbabwe University.

Mupiwa says students in Zimbabwe benefit from the education system even if they are learning under difficult conditions.
