The last two decades have seen a remarkable growth in higher education in Uganda and across the globe. Uganda is at a juncture where a huge population of young people is opting for higher education. With the tremendous growth of privatization of education in Uganda, the major focus is on creating a platform for quality in knowledge enhancement.

Ankole Western University is on the path of delivering quality education by developing the young human resources on the foundation of ethical and moral values, while boosting their leadership qualities, research culture and innovative skills. The main objective of the University is to provide higher education of global standards and hence, all the programs are designed to meet international standards. Highly experienced and qualified faculty members have been recruited to enhance quality education that we all deserve.

All the programs offered by Ankole Western University are accredited by the Uganda National Council for Higher Education. The curriculum has been designed taking into considerations employer interests. We believe sincerely that it will meet the aspirations of all stakeholders-students, parents and the employers of the graduates of Ankole Western University.

We are striving to make sure that at Ankole Western University research, consultancy and innovation are prioritized and regarded as our pillars of success. A good number of the faculty members of the University are involved in research by attracting funded projects from various research level organizations.

Ankole Western University has entered into collaboration with many prominent organizations. Regular visits to organizations and mandatory internship have helped our students become skilled with relevant to industry requirements. Structured training programs on soft-skills and preparatory training for competitive exams are offered here to make students more employable.

As we look to the future one thing is certain-knowledge will be a key resource and will be highly sought-after within Uganda and around the world. Our challenge is to help to generate ideas that will benefit society, and to educate and train people to work in fields where they will be valued both for their specialised knowledge, and for their ability to research, communicate and solve problems.

I strongly believe Ankole Western University is marching ahead in the right direction, providing a holistic education to the future generation and playing a positive role in nation building. We reiterate our endeavor to provide premium quality education accessible to all and an environment for the growth of over-all personality development.
