Why go to Uganda Christian University (UCU)? First-year UCU students spoke to Ivan Tsebeni in September 2021.
Jjuuko Gavin Eric – Bachelor of Science in Information Technology
I love the way the institution adapted so fast to the prevailing situation of the Covid-19 pandemic. Other institutions are still waiting for physical classes to resume in November, but UCU is fully operating online. It’s very unique and will enhance my information technology skills.
Bridget Akello – Bachelor of Science in Accounting and Finance
I was inspired by UCU’s spiritual foundation. I wanted an institution where I would learn all aspects of life.
Cherop Laban Sabila – Bachelor of Medicine & Bachelor of Surgery
For me, it is about the morals that the institution imparts in its students. You see, any healthy worker ought to embrace the values of servanthood and being God-loving, to help guide them in their performance. And that is what UCU imparts in its students.
Siwa Morah – Bachelor of Science in Information Technology
I decided to transfer from Kampala International University to UCU because it is the institution I have always dreamt of from childhood. I love the beautiful, serene and conducive environment at UCU, which makes one’s study comfortable.
Sarah Natasha Nakimuli – Bachelor of Procurement and Logistics Management
The way the institution offers comprehensive learning to students inspired me to make it my first choice. I kept admiring my sister’s way of life – she respects people, and this, for me, was just enough to attract me to the institution.
Mercy Akumu – Bachelor of Nursing Science
I think the university has friendly students, which attracted me to have a taste of the same. Still, the compound is classy and conducive for learning. Who would not want that?
Joan Nabirye – Bachelor of Science in Computer Science
Quality education, loving and caring staff stands out for me. Students are also well disciplined and ready to support each other.
Blessed Kiwanuka – Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and Communication
I have been a student here before and I have always seen my journalism friends do a lot of practical training, which are the skills I need.
Mickelange Kakenyere – Bachelor of Science in Civil and Environmental Engineering
A friend who had studied at UCU some years ago recommended the institution. I love the level of orderliness and organisation at the university. Students are respected and treated well.
