MAKERERE University has re-advertised 15 courses after it failed to admit the required number of private students. The courses are in the faculties of computing and information technology (ICT), forestry and nature conservation, veterinary medicine, science, arts and adult and continuing education.

The ICT courses are new, so many students may not have known about them at the time of application,

Michael Niyitegeka, an official at the Faculty of Technology, said.

“We did not get the required number to be admitted this year. We need more students to apply for the courses,” he added.

So far, the university has admitted 13,455 privately-sponsored undergraduate students for 166 programmes, out of 25,000 applicants. Meanwhile, the orientation week for the incoming students at Makerere is expected to begin today.

The second semester will open on August 22 and will run till December 19.

According to the university’s records, a quarter of the students admitted for private sponsorship last year did not turn up, allowing the university to admit others who had been placed on the waiting list.
