Call for Applications for Foundation Certificate Programme

Uganda Technology and Management University (UTAMU) calls for applications to the Foundation Certificate Programme (FCP).

A UTAMU graduand at the 2017 Graduation Ceremony.

The Foundation Certificate Programme (FCP) is a pre-university course designed to bridge the gap for international students between high school and undergraduate studies in Uganda. It is specifically designed for international students who do not hold an equivalent of ‘A’ level qualification which is a requirement for direct entry to Year 1 of an undergraduate Diploma or Degree programme in Uganda.

The Foundation certificate programme lasts for two semesters or approximately eight months and has intakes in January, May and September.

This programme is carefully formulated between the support skill needed for academic life and academic subjects needed to sustain university studies. The mix of courses offered on the Programme will set students to a path to achieving their goals of obtaining a university education. The students are provided with both technical and social skills that will enable them effectively embark on university education from a country that they are not very familiar with.
