The mentorship conference, designed to prepare students for the challenges awaiting them in the business and career world, once they graduate from university, has invited remarkable personalities, who have excelled in their professional careers, to speak and to mentor participating students. The theme of this year’s Conference is “Success in the 21st century” and 4,000 students are expected to attend.
A new recognition of multi-campus Unicaf University came with the announcement that the University has been accepted as a member of SARUA, the Southern African Regional Universities Association.

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.
