REVEALED: Five Top Gov’t Universities Now Teaching Expired Courses

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

When you hear of expired courses being taught Uganda’s Universities, it throws those who graduated in a frenzy of panic and uncertainty but now it seems studying expired courses is becoming the new normal in the Pearl of Africa.

Having thought the mess was resolved last year after the public uproar over the word EXPIRED COURSES, the same word that sounds bells of fear and panic is back to haunt five public universities which continue teaching a whooping 222 expired courses to their students.


While handing over his audit report for the financial year ending June 2023, the auditor general separately revealed that five public universities are offering their students expired courses.

“Analysis of programmes from 5 Universities revealed that out of the 629 programmes, only 332 were accredited, 138 had been sent to NCHE for accreditation, while 222 were not accredited,” read in part the report.

He revealed that Makerere takes the lion’s share in teaching expired courses with 120 courses expired, followed by Kyambogo with 63 expired courses, Mbarara University with 21, Makerere University School with 15 and Gulu University with 3.

Accreditation of courses taught in both public and private Universities is a reserve of the National Council for Higher Education headed by former Busitema University Vice Chancellor Prof Mary Okwakol. It remains a question of who, why, what and when will this mess be fixed as it is set to affect employability and also affect those who want to upgrade their education in foreign universities.

This comes at a time when Nigerian government declared it would soon declare degrees got from Uganda and Kenya by their citizens null and void claiming the same are becoming rampant with fake degrees.
