Busitema University has called for applications for admission under the private sponsorship scheme in the 2014/2015 academic year.


The university is offering 827 vacancies for 15 courses under the private sponsorship scheme. The courses will be undertaken in the institution’s five campuses of Mbale, Arapai, Busitema, Namassagali and Nagongera.

The most competitive of the courses on offer is Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery, to be undertaken at the Mbale Campus which has only 17 places.

Other degree courses on offer include: Agricultural Mechanization and Irrigation Engineering, Computer Engineering, Education, Textile Engineering, Water Resources Engineering, Agro-Processing Engineering, Mining Engineering, Natural Resource Economics, and Animal Production & Management.

Ginning Engineering, Agricultural Engineering, Computer Engineering, Animal Production & Management and Crop Production & Management are the courses being offered on diploma level.

However, candidates who did not take agriculture at A’ level should have passed it with at least a credit at O’ Level to be eligible for admission to Bachelor of Agricultural Mechanization and Irrigation Engineering.

Candidates who did not do chemistry at A’ Level should have passed it with at least a credit at O’ level, to be considered for admission to Bachelor of Science in Textile Engineering and Diploma in Ginning Engineering.

Elisa Obella, the Busitema academic registrar says application forms with paying in slips can be obtained from the five campuses, or from the university’s liaison office, Lincoln Flats, Room C4 Makerere University.

The application costs a non-refundable fee of Sh50, 000 payable via Stanbic or Centenary banks.

“A receipt for the application fee will be issued on presentation of a valid paying in bank slip. You may also download the application form from the website: www.busitema.ac.ug, “Obella explains. The deadline for application is Friday, June 20.

Kyambogo applicants complain

Meanwhile, applicants for admission under the private admission system at Kyambogo University have complained that the online application system is non-responsive whilst confusing.

A student only identified as Arnold has been trying to apply for the last three days but could only manage to create his account.

“The system does not respond when I attempt to fill my details. I have spent a lot of money in internet cafés and yet I have not even uploaded any document,” complained Arnold.

Several of the students interviewed want Kyambogo to resume the manual application system, to speed-up the application process.

In a phone interview with New Vision over the weekend, Rose Bwire, the Kyambogo academic registrar said the university would only use the online application system this year and urged students facing challenges with the procedure to visit the university for assistance.
