Uganda Christian University is rolling out two new academic programme starting next January.
The new programmes, Master of Laws in International Energy, Law & Policy (modular), will be studied at the Kampala Campus.
The other one is Bachelor of Laws (Evening), specific for Kampala campus.
Christa Kyomya Oluka, the UCU director of admissions, said the programmes are a response to the main campus space limitations coupled with the huge demand for the course in the country.
“We have always had more applicants for Bachelor of Laws than we can accommodate. So the faculty decided to schedule a session in January to take on more students,” Kyomya said.
She said the two developments are also targetted at the working class who many times want to study but lack time during day.
This is not the only new development within the university. In September, the university also launched its school of medicine which was started in collaboration with Mengo Hospital.
A total of 62 students have been enrolled to study the Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery, and Bachelor of Dental Surgery.
Dr Edward Kanyesigye, the school dean, vowed that the school would train doctors with high ethical and integrity standards who will transform Uganda’s health sector.
