About VUU


The Virtual University of Uganda is fully licenced by the Uganda National Council for Higher Education. 
As the first online university in the region, we are proud to be part of the technological revolution in tertiary education.

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.

As a private-not-for-profit 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.
