Reviews by our alumni to help you pick

  • “I was fascinated to see people go in a place sick and come out well, I was surprised that somebody could identify your problem and help you get better…By the time I  was in secondary school, I was looking for a profession where I could do that.” 
    Dr. Elizabeth Namukombe Ekong
  • “I had always wanted to pursue a course at UCU. It offers a unique experience which sets one apart,” she said. “They offer foundational course units, such as writing and study skills, which give us an upper hand at the work place.”

    Uwimbabazi Sarah
  • If UCU continues with the way it delivers knowledge, it will keep churning out health workers who observe ethical standards with high Christian values and professionalism – virtues she says the university imparts on its students, for them to have an edge on the job market. 

    Veronica Rachael Nakkonde
  • “The curriculum of nursing at UCU has also got foundation course units, such as Understanding Christian Ethics, which shape the world views of students,”
