PANIC AGAIN: Five Public Universities Still Teaching Expired Courses

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Last year, there was panic in Uganda after some students were denied entry for master’s studies at some UK based Universities after it happened that the courses they did were expired.


The mandate to accredit courses offered and taught at both Public and public Universities in Uganda is with the National Council for Higher Education currently headed by former Busitema University Vice Chancellor Prof Mary Okwakol.

NCHE would later come out to clarify after both public and private Universities demanded for explanation pushing blame to the accreditation body for delaying to renew such courses hence being referred to as expired courses as the same remained on their website.

NHCE also called upon Universities to officially have the courses they offer to their students be re-evaluated and accredited as this is supposed to be done every after two years and all students mostly in Private Universities pay a fee dubbed NCHE fee which ranges between Shs10,000 to Shs20,000 every semester through out their time at university.

Now while handing over his audit report for the financial year ending on 30th June 2023, the Auditor General John Muwanga has revealed that five public Universities in Uganda are reaching a total of 222 expired courses. The Universities include Makerere with 120 expired courses, Kyambogo University with 63 expired courses, Mbarara University of Science and Technology with 21 expired courses, Gulu University with 3 expired courses and Makerere University Business School with 15 expired courses.
