Mulago, Uganda: On Wednesday, Makerere University in partnership with Nottingham Trent University organized a seminar on the Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility Programme with focus on how students can study from University in the UK
Speaking to Umoja Standard News Agency, Dr. David Musoke – Senior Lecturer in Department of Disease Control Environmental Health at Makerere University School Public Health (MakSPH) said that the seminar was addressing queries around how students can tap into opportunities, how to prepare documents and requirements to enter and study in the United Kingdom and work from their afterwards.
Dr. Musoke told this website that there were fundamental questions from students not limited to how long one would stay in UK after a course before returning, scholarships, fees.
He told us that a colleague from Nottingham Trent University– Mission Office stated that if one has evidence to have completed a degree from the UK, there is a VISA one can apply for and is granted.
“There is no time frame, master’s study has been going on in the UK for over a thousand years. This is something students can tap on whether today or the day, Universities in the UK and scholarships will always be there so anyone can apply at any point in time and tap into the opportunities”. Dr. Musoke quoted when asked whether the opportunity is life long.
Asked on the special difference one would get in studying from the UK not Uganda, Dr. said that being in the new environment, one gets different exposure, culture, lecturers but also the approach to teaching, the methods they use are quite different, methods of research that they train but also being in a new environment exposes one to new things that can be practiced here (Uganda) when students finish.
