Victoria University, one of the many education investments made by the Ruparelia Group, has announced that aspiring students can now get fully funded scholarships to study courses of their choice at the Jinja Road-based institution.
Victoria University Vice-Chancellor Dr Krishna N. Sharma said students applying will, however, be mandated to pay a small application fee.
The university didn’t specify how many scholarships they are going to give out but last year, Victoria University gave out a significant number of scholarships through the Ruparelia Foundation and the beneficiaries commenced their studies.
In December, to celebrate the festive season, Victoria University offered students joining the institution for short courses this festive season up to 20% discount on fees. The offer closed on 31st December 2019. And now, for the March-April intake, they return with big offers.
In a recent interview with News Today Uganda, the Vice Chancellor Dr. Sharma said the university is going in the right direction and is destined for greatness and wants parents and students to consider it because it is a university that ‘helps you identify where your strength lies as an individual.’
“Before going to a university, a student and parent should know what the child wants to do for the rest of his or her life. I suggest that parents should help their children identify their passion.
“At Victoria University, we help you identify where your strength lies as an individual. You don’t have to sit in a class with hundreds of other students, you can’t get that Victoria University.
“Victoria University has state of the art facilities. Our professors are well vetted before being recruited. Every lecturer is interviewed not just by anyone but the VC, faculty deans, university council and the appointments committee. We are so careful when finding a fulltime staff.
