In 2011 Archbishop Daniel Deng Bul commissioned a feasibility study for the Episcopal Church of Sudan and South Sudan in relation to the establishment of a Christian foundation university in the province. The study was carried out by two education experts from the UK,  Dr Ruth Eade and Dr Eeva John, who visited South Sudan and gathered views from potential stakeholders, assessed potential sites and made recommendations about the next steps for the establishment of a Christian foundation university.

The study recommended that ECSS&S should establish a geographically dispersed model of university using the present structures of the church’s higher education institutions, each specialising in one or two subjects. The study recommended the establishment of a foundation programme that prepared secondary school leavers for higher education at university level.
