The School of Kiswahili and Foreign Language is among the schools established by the State University of Zanzibar (SUZA) since October 2012, before its emergence as the outcome of massive restructuring process started in 2012, there was the Institute of Kiswahili and Foreign Languages.

The activities of the Department of Kiswahili for Foreigners were initially embedded in the former Institute of Kiswahili and Foreign Languages, better known as TAKILUKI which was established in 1979.
