Prof Nawangwe directs Mak HODs to submit list of expired courses

Makerere University Vice Chancellor Prof Barnabas Nawangwe has directed Heads of Departments, schools, and colleges to immediately submit updated lists of expired courses and programs.

This follows a revelation by the National Council for Higher Education that over 2,200 courses and programs being taught in both public and private institutions expired with some dating as far back as 13 years and have not been submitted for review.

According to the list posted on the Council’s website, Makerere University has the highest number of affected courses.

Now in a memo issued to the university staff today, Prof Nawangwe says the institution is currently in the press, along with other universities, for the wrong reasons.

He notes that a number of their academic programmes are not accredited by the Council and this has led to the denial of admission to some of their graduates for higher degrees by some European universities, raising concerns among members of the public.
