After earning a university degree, one expects to be able to secure a good job, which can provide a reasonably comfortable life from the first day, yet many graduates struggle for years to pay off their student debt before they can start living the life they want. The main culprit for this is high tuition fees. When one adds to university fees the additional costs of studying, like accommodation away from home, transportation, purchase of books, other living expenses and even the cost of air travel the extend of the problem becomes even more obvious.
Deciding to pursue a university degree is a big step that can change your life. Not only will you earn an academic qualification to help you find a job, or advance in your career, you will also acquire a competitive advantage which can help you stand out to employers and succeed professionally.
The UNICAF Corporate Scholarship Scheme to Benefit Employees of the Next Media Corporation in Uganda
A ground-breaking agreement of co-operation was signed in Kampala, between UNICAF and Next Media, (the umbrella group for NBS TV, Nile Post, Salam TV, Sanyuka TV and a host of other companies in Uganda). The co-operation between the two organisations falls under the innovative UNICAF Corporate Scholarship Scheme, and will enable employees of Next Media to increase their professional knowledge and skills at a fraction of the original cost, thanks to guaranteed 85% UNICAF scholarships plus 15% sponsorship offered by their employer. Under the agreement, eligible Next Media employees can study online toward Master’s degree programmes offered by the University of South Wales in the UK, or multi-campus Unicaf University in Africa, or even conduct scientific research leading to a Doctorate degree qualification with Unicaf University.
Life is usually a case of expecting the unexpected. It is usually difficult to schedule something even a month in advance, let alone a year! Over the course of a few months, our circumstances can change dramatically.
