The accreditation is a requirement for every University to acquire from the council to carry out professional and reputable research.

The University will now start to administer and conduct research in all fields by both students and non-students in all academic fields.

 The University has been struggling to carry out research from Mbarara University of Science and Technology adding that it was tiresome and costly to the University and the students.
