Testimonials

"I urge the current students not to give up easily on their studies, but come to VUU. I struggled himself while studying at UNISA where I was required to order study materials and sometimes did not even receive the right materials. Without the right materials there little chance of passing exams. I commended VUU a lot because all this struggle was not necessary. The materials were always at my disposal."

Emmanuel Maraka
"Virtual University of Uganda gave me an opportunity to manage my studies, in the comfort of my living room I could concentrate and study minus worrying about the traffic jam and the strikes at the campus.

The lecturers were so good and enabled me to explore the hidden treasures in the world of academia. It has been so easy for me to integrate theory into practice and this has improved my performance at the place of work."

Charles Mubiru
Class of 2017
"The on-line lectures allowed me to interface with instructors and fellow students in class and continue discussions outside the structured programme at my convenience. To my delight I received all the technical guidance to access digitized course content and on-line lectures right from the start. I did not have the hassle of waiting for printed materials to arrive as was the case when I was doing BA distance education."

"A friend of mine recommended I join VUU. The biggest challenge I faced was how to make up the time for the classes. I soon realized that that was not a big challenge at all because everything was being done online. It has been a very interesting and exciting new experience and I enjoyed it a lot."
Perry Gamba
Monitoring and Evaluation Officer at Directorate of Medical Services - MoD
"My experience as an online student at VUU was both rewarding and fulfilling. As someone with a busy schedule who is constantly on the move, I was able to go about my daily activities and at the same time, study and do my course works on time. In addition, it was always exciting to check out my virtual classmates from different countries across the world, as well as the lecturers. Furthermore, we had a vast range of reading materials from the World class Universities and it made it easier for me to understand. I cannot forget to mention the lecturers who were very professional and interesting at the same time. I always looked forward to the online lectures."

Emmanuel Maraka
Pioneering International Development and pre-PhD student
"I enjoyed the course and loved the fact that even when I was on maternity leave and had a breastfeeding baby at home, I was able to continue with the programme. At one point I had to do an exam while my husband babysat the baby in the next room. I first made sure my son was well fed and then handed him over to the father and the baby never cried the whole duration of the exam. I was happy I did not have to put my studies on hold."
Benardet Asio

Online live sessions were high quality and interactive taught by professional academics. I am happy that I participated in such a great programme in Project Management at VUU"
