Great Lakes University

Change the life of a child for just £15


Great Lakes Regional University recently became Uganda's first rural University. It's thanks to your continued support and donations that Volunteer Uganda is able to work in partnership with the University to make higher education accessible to a population who previously have never been able to afford it.

By offering a carefully selected range of contextually relevant diploma and degree level courses the University enables its students to graduate ready to contribute to development across the region.

Great Lakes runs large in-service teacher training, facilitates international research projects and subsidises its own operations through income generating activities.

Andrew's Story

Great Lakes Regional University has helped me so much. It is near my home area meaning transport becomes cheap for me. The school fees are affordable for me. My course, tourism, needs me to be near national parks. Great Lakes College is so near to many of the parks such as Queen Elizabeth National Park so it eases my trips.

The lectures are good enough to teach me and I learn well and understand the content. Its accommodation is favourable for me, some of the buildings are the best for miles.

The administration from the the top to the bottom is good for me and I like discipline of the students. I see my career a bright one as the documents received from the Great Lakes Regional University weigh a lot and I know I will be able to get a job anywhere.
