Our University

Virtual University of Uganda is fully licensed by the Uganda National Council for Higher Education. As the first online-only postgraduate university in Africa, we are proud to play a significant role in the technological revolution in education.

Join us and study online! We aim to bring premier learning resources to professionals in the fields of public health and international development who wish to obtain a postgraduate qualification without having to take time off work or travel to an outside country.

Our staff are experienced academics who are recruited locally, regionally, and internationally.

VUU programmes are accessed through our dedicated learning platform (Moodle) hosted by UP Learning in The Netherlands. Our vast Open Access Digital Library is available to staff, students, and the general public 24/7.

We are working with Mbarara University of Science and Technology to deliver a world-class ICT for Development programme fully online, and University of Africa to make our online business administration programme available in Zambia and Southern Africa. As a private institution, the mission of the Virtual University of Uganda is to achieve excellence in tertiary education provision through providing quality programmes of the highest standards to students who will contribute to positive development in society.
