General Information for International Students

As an international student, we are your home away from home. We help you adapt to your new environment in Uganda and make sure that you have a successful academic, personal and cross-cultural experience.

The office of the Directorate of Student Affairs (DOSA) serves all incoming and currently enrolled international students at the University. The DOSA Office assists students in maintaining their legal status in Uganda, and promotes interaction with and integration into the Uganda Christian University community.

The DOSA’s Office provides the following services:

  • Help students to acquire student pass. A student pass is issued to foreign students intending to study in an institution of higher learning in Uganda if s/he has been accepted in a programme of study at a recognized Ugandan institution. A student pass is mandatory for all international students. It is free for all East African students and at 100 US Dollars for the non East Africans.
  • Accommodation is reserved for for international students on campus.
  • Orientation programmes for entering international undergraduate and graduate students.
  • Sponsors events and programmes to help students adjust to life in Uganda and at UCU, and provides counseling related to emergencies and unexpected immigration problems.
  • Offers transport facilities for new international students. Students, who arrive by both air and bus are picked on arrival in Uganda. However, to make the process seamless and smooth, the students have to keep in touch with the DOSA’s office before and during their transit.
