Cavendish Programmes

Foundation Programme 

Our foundation programmes are designed for talented applicants who are not eligible for direct entry to an undergraduate course. A foundation year enables you to gain the subject-specific knowledge and skills required to embark on degree-level studies.


Business acumen is a difficult thing to teach. However, the individual skills that make a successful business-person can be developed, polished, and mastered. Our School of Business invests in each of our students. It helps them acquire practical, measurable, active principles and thought patterns. These lessons can be applied to any business situation, as an employee, and entrepreneur, or an executive. Furthermore, we place our graduates in jobs where they can effectively use what they learned. Call, email, or visit us so we can get down to business.


The Faculty of Science and Technology extends the vision and mission of Cavendish University Uganda. The faculty has a highly self-motivated and dedicated academic staff who are inculcated with the desire to serve and uphold integrity, professionalism, respect, fairness, cultural diversity of staff and students.

We recognize the dynamic nature of the fields of Health science, Engineering and Technology. Therefore, our students are competently nurtured to meet the current and future technology demands in the competitive market. We believe that one of the sources of value that our graduates bring is a unique set of skills and new modes of thought. These give them the ability to transcend the traditional setting of the workplace.

Our graduates in Health Sciences are Innovative, highly competitive and professional in public health service. They are prepared adequately to serve communities in the areas of Disease prevention and Health promotion.

We give our Engineering students the knowledge and skills necessary to participate effectively in teams, in the development of large telecommunications and computer systems, covering a broad range of engineering and scientific applications. They are able to design, build, test and maintain computer systems both hardware and software.

The faculty offers a simplified approach to teaching which stimulates human desire for science, Engineering and technology careers. We have programmes designed to attract students of non-science background into the science and technology professions.


Artists and social scientists are the greatest treasure in any society. They keep us connected to our history, our culture, and our humanity. Teachers, social workers, researchers, entertainers, diplomats, media personnel, and tourism promoters occupy a vast portion of our economy. They inspire the next generation and maintain the fabric of our society. Let us know which area you are interested in, so we can chart this path together.


The School of Post Graduate Studies & Research (SPGSR) is the unit that coordinates graduate training and research in Cavendish University Uganda (CUU). Prior to 2011, graduate studies in CUU were handled largely at faculty level. In 2011 management and coordination of the graduate education was designed to be centrally coordinated by a graduate school. Since then the SPGSR has been working on structures to handle numerous graduate programmes ranging from diplomas, MA/Msc to PhDs. The SPGSR focuses on national development by engaging in education, training and innovating new systems.
