"CUU gave me an Opportunity to join University when I had lost all Hope!"

Desperate and desolate after my S.6, in spite of my good grades, I had no hope of joining University. Then one day, a friend of mine informed me that she had landed on the Cavendish University Uganda flyers on social media, announcing the first-ever scholarship programme for bright but financially challenged fresh S.6 levers.

I was excited and thrilled at the opportunity. I dashed to the University and when I got to the main campus, it was the last day of registration. I applied for a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism and Communication Studies and sat for the Scholarship entry exams, and the rest is a story that culminated in graduating on the Vice Chancellor's list Cum Laude - a First Class Degree, with a 4.57 CGPA! Class of 2017-2020.

I am so proud of CUU because it gave me an opportunity to join university and further my education when I had lost all hope after my S6. I have experienced a 3-year quality education through highly experienced lectures at no cost.

CUU 's student-centric approach enabled me to meet quite a number of resourceful people who have been so instrumental in my life. At CUU I learnt so many skills that are helping me in my business and are relevant to the current business competition.

CUU became a home away from home. New friends, I have made among students and staff alike. Thank you CUU for this great opportunity and means to live out and achieve my academic dream.

Indeed, success begins at Cavendish!

May God reward you abundantly, long live CUU. For God and My Country.
