Victoria University has offered 10 bursaries to each of the 529 members of the 11th Parliament.
The 5290 bursaries will go to the financially struggling-best learners from their respective constituencies.
While delivering the announcement, the University posted on its different social media platforms saying; ”Has your MP offered you a bursary? We extended at least ten (10) COVID-19 tuition-relief bursaries to each of the 529 Members of Parliament. Get in touch with your MP today and grab this chance of joining Victoria University.”
According to one of the letters addressed to the MPs signed by the university’s Vice-Chancellor Dr. Lawrence Muganga, the university will waive off the functional fees, paid once every year, ranging from Shs350,000 to Shs650,000 depending on whether a student is offering a Master, Bachelor, Diploma or Higher Education Certificate (HEC).
Also, sponsored students will only be expected to pay tuition fees which range from Shs 400,000 to Shs930,000, depending on any given academic program of their choice.
”We are privileged to be the only university in the country that has implemented a learning approach where students study while working to gain experience. Cur work-integrated- learning program is enabling students to complete a program of three years with two to three years’ work experience,” reads the letter addressed to MPs.
”For effective communication with the university, kindly coordinate with the Head of Marketing on 0701702443/07703990 68 or email us at email@example.com We look forward to partnering with you to educate and facilitate the dreams of young,” letter adds.
