Why Study in Uganda! See Why More and More are Choosing to...

There are thousands of international students who seek to study in Uganda every year and the number keeps growing steadily.

It is quite easy to see why more and more are choosing education in Uganda: its beauty, the friendly people, the culture and its safe learning environment are just a few of the long list.

The vibrant student life will take you by surprise.

Both local and international students can choose from the internationally recognised institutions such as Makerere University-Kampala, Victoria University, Makerere University Business School - Nakawa, Kampala International University and the other public and private institutions and speciality colleges spread all over the country.

...But here is more reason why you would choose Education in Uganda;

The Ranking web of Universities listed Makerere University Kampala (MUK) as one of the top Universities in Africa - coming in at number 9. You will also find Busitema University, Uganda Christian University , St Lawrence University and Mbarara University of Science and Technology making this elite list.

In 2011, the Scimago Institutions Ranking rated Makerere University Kampala (MUK) at number 12 that went on to improve to 11th in 2012. These are good times for Ugandan universities ... and things can only get better.

... And here is even more;

You will be pleased to know that besides the safe learning atmosphere, Uganda's education is cheap in terms of tuition fees and cost of living compared to elsewhere in the world ...and that's not to take the quality away!

There is a whole range of programmes to choose from at the different colleges and universities with good quality of graduates that are easily employable in the job market.

The uniqueness of the Ugandan institutions is also with the speciality - Majority do accommodate special-needs students with courses and facilities that you won't quite easily find elsewhere in the region.

Uganda has plenty to offer to those looking at doing a degree, or those looking for shorter specific courses. Follow your dreams, carefully choosing your career - there is a wide range of speciality schools too: cookery, interior design, hotel management and tourism, art, mechanical and business.
