Graduations at UCU
UCU holds seven graduation ceremonies annually at its Main Campus, regional campuses and Constituent Colleges. These include three graduation ceremonies at the UCU Main Campus in Mukono, two graduation ceremonies at Bishop Barham University College, (BBUC, Kabale) and two graduation ceremonies at UCU Mbale University College. Students at UCU Kampala Campus and UCU Arua Campus graduate from the Main Campus in Mukono.
The multiple graduation ceremonies and issuance of transcripts on graduation day are convenient to our students who don’t have to travel long distances. They also allow our students to graduate as and when they finish their courses and in the process facilitate their quicker absorption in the job market.
UCU has three intakes a year: January (Easter), May (Trinity) and September (Advent) intakes.
