While the School of Education (SOE) was established in 2012, its origins can be traced back to the 2001 founding of the Department of Education previously part of the School of Education, Arts and Science (SEAS). After the university restructuring in October 2012, the Department of Education, was upgraded and became the School of Education (SoE). Before restructuring, the department focused on addressing professional development needs of Zanzibar educators, and preparation of secondary school teachers. Recently, SoE has been making deliberate efforts to further expand its programs by introducing new programs which intend to provide wide range of professions.

Zanzibar Institute of Financial Administration (ZIFA) as it currently exists was established by Presidential Order of 2nd July 1998. This was mandated by the official Act No.1 of 2002.

The Institute is located at Chwaka village, scenic fishing village in Central District 30 kilometers from Zanzibar town.The alarming scarcity of accountants in middle level class forced the Government of Zanzibar to establish an Institute which will teach as many middle cadre accountants as possible. Therefore, ZIFA was established to cater that need.

College of Health Sciences Zanzibar (CHS) was established by the House of Representatives Act No. 10 of 1998 as a semi autonomous organ. It has its own governing bodies which are Academic Board that deals with academic issues and Council that is the sole responsible for all matters.
However, the College is a mere continuation of Zanzibar Health Training School which was established in 1938. It was official inaugurated in 1989 aiming at providing quality health services for improving life of people of Zanzibar.
