Makerere University in Shs18b revenue drop as student numbers fall

“Makerere University’s non tax revenue has fallen by Shs18b over the last three years. The fall in revenue is largely due to the decrease in enrolment occasioned by a council decision in 2006 to reduce enrolment by 10 per cent each year due to lack of facilities, especially in teaching space. The fall in revenue has seriously constrained university activities,” Prof Nawangwe said.

Reports by the monitor has seen indicate that the gallant institution’s revenue source is now mainly collected from students in form of tuition, drop from Shs99.1b in 2015 to Shs89.3b in 2017.
