The Faculty programmes are designed to attract a diversity of students from across Africa and beyond: Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, DRC, Sudan, Nigeria, Zimbabwe etc. This gives our students excellent opportunity for exposure to international experiences.


Our programmes are designed to equip students with practical knowledge and skills through fieldwork/experiential learning. Our students are also engaged in community outreach programmes, as part of the university's corporate social responsibility but also as an opportunity for students to be innovative and to gain meaningful practical skills. This has been possible through faculty partnerships with different government institutions, local and international organizations.
