KIUT ORGANIZES ORIENTATION PROGRAMME FOR NEW STUDENTS
The Directorate of Academic Affairs of Kampala International University in Tanzania (KIUT) organizes a week-long registration cum orientation programme for new intakes of 2017/2018 academic session, from 9th to 13th October, 2017.
The orientation programme is designed to support new students as they begin their journey at KIUT. This will enable them to become familiar with the physical campus, as it has been the university culture, to make it easier to understand what lies ahead of them and therefore have informed conversations during their stay in the university. During the course of the programme, new students are gradually introduced to life at the university, including academics, resources and support services. As such, staff from various departments in the University will be on ground to give necessary tips to the new entrants, as well as attend to their questions in whatever areas of concern that may arise.
The orientation programme which is for two days (12th -13th October, 2017) is preceded by three days (9th – 11th October, 2017) of registration, in the same week. The orientation programme will also feature students’ guild leaders, who will be addressing the new entrants to get them acquainted with the activities of the students’ guild in KIUT. Therefore, new students are encouraged to report on 9th October, 2017, to commence their registration with various directorates and departments before the two-day orientation programme slated for Thursday 12th to Friday 13th October, 2017 at 9.00am respectively. After which, they will be expected to resume classes for the first semester on 16th Oct 2017.
