Program Description

Foundation

Lay the foundation for your degree with the Cavendish University Uganda’s Foundation Program. Gain the subject-specific knowledge and skills to keep you a step ahead of your peers as you begin your journey to success.

The Foundation Program is intended for students who have successfully completed the Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education (UACE) or its equivalent but didn’t attain sufficiently high grades to enroll for Diploma or Degree programs. It’s also intended for students from countries whose secondary school qualifications are not considered equivalent to UACE. The Courses emphasize general principles and application.
