UNICAF invited Ugandan students to meet in a nice café in Kampala to get to know each other and to network. 10 students, doing University of Nicosia degree programmes through UNICAF, met on July 15th and had a great time talking about their experiences. After coffee and snacks the group expressed their joy and gratitude for this opportunity to meet with fellow UNICAF students in Uganda. They even wrote down their remarks on coloured sticky notes, took photographs of the event and expressed their satisfaction and pride for being a UNICAF student in video testimonials.
The aim of this get together was to instil in students the sense of belonging to a multinational, progressive group, which is the UNICAF students and alumni community.
Present at the event, Mark Mwebaze, an MBA with the University of Nicosia said that he has already joined a WhatsApp group with global students doing the same course with UNICAF to share experiences discuss challenging modules and ways to go overcome them; this, he said, has been a huge help academically. Hearing this the rest of the Ugandan students decided to create their own WhatsApp group to keep this contact alive throughout their studies and also after graduation as a useful networking tool.
