The education system in Uganda offers a wide range of theoretical concepts without digging deep into the practical skills needed for the course.
Many students graduate with degrees from the University only to find out that they are incompetent and half-baked, incapable of delivering what is required by the job market.
Mr Odeke Julius, had his Bachelors degree of Màss communication at the prestigious Kampala International University but he wishes the university had taught him television work, he would be better than he is now .
He asked the university to keep on engaging UCC for re-opening of KIU radio and further asked continuing students to do internship in different media houses in order to gain all the skills in both print and broadcast.

She asks the university to equip students with more of practical than theoretical skills because in the field requires hands-on. She advises students to go and study short courses in graphics,production to be equipped with practical knowledge.
