List of Ugandan Universities at Risk of Closure – NCHE

The National Council of Higher Education (NCHE) has warned that private universities without a charter risk closure this year.

Addressing journalists yesterday, the executive director of NCHE, Prof Mary Okwakol, said by acquiring charter status, the university will help in delivering quality education that meets international standards.

“In 2018, we requested the universities, which are provisionally licensed to produce road maps towards applying for charter status, regrettably, not long after that, a number of them produced them but as you are aware in 2020, we had the Covid-19 pandemic,” she said.

“But at the moment, we are studying the road maps and guiding each institution. We expect not long from now, all of them should be able to apply for charter status,” Prof Okwakol added.

She added that the NCHE act provides that a provisionally licensed university only holds a provision status for at least three years.
