"I am a recipient of Cavendish University Uganda’s pioneer Scholarship Programme"

I am graduate of Human Resource Management from Cavendish University Uganda and also a recipient of the CUU Scholarship Award 2017-2019. I graduated on the 28th of May 2020 with a 4.32 CGPA. I am excited to have achieved my first academic degree having studied at no cost due to CUU's community outreach and engagement efforts.

My academic journey at CUU was quite interesting, awesome, and engaging. From the very first day I set foot at Cavendish, my brain was turned towards excellence just by looking at how the University was designed, the teaching facilities and general campus ambiance, I had private conversations with my mind. I made a mental note with myself - "Cathie, come what may, you must excel!"

I did everything to the best of my ability focused on my initial impression of the University and the prospect of studying on Scholarship. I found the staff friendly and encouraging, let it be an individual lecturer, the Vice Chancellor, or a Janitor, all were geared towards excellence and success. This approach and mental fortitude always challenged me when it came to my career.

I thank God that I was given the chance to do my training at the same University. I worked in almost all the offices and this also helped me develop my esteem and plan well for my management career.

Student amenities also contributed immensely towards my success. Talk about the well-equipped library, computer laboratory as well as the free WiFi in all lecture rooms, that made life easy.

Research and course work, oh that was my hardest, all lecturers were strict on timelines and quality presentations! In hindsight now, I appreciate the pressure, the training, hard as it was, it gave us lifetime professional and social skills. What more can I say; It's the best University I have known in Uganda!
