University of Kigali is set to hold its biggest Graduation at the Kigali Arena on Friday 3rd December 2021.
The University will conduct its 6th Graduation with over 2000 graduates, a record number as compared to earlier graduation ceremonies.
This year’s ceremony will be held under the theme; “Seize the Future” to encourage all graduands to go out and excel and bear true witness to the excellent tuition and student experiences they have been exposed to while on campus.
The issue of large numbers and the venue for the event is significant at three levels:
COVID-19 did not disrupt classes as the University transitioned seamlessly to e-learning platforms and delivered teaching services to students remotely.
UoK Faculty and Administrators demonstrated remarkable resilience in going to extra mile to serve students who themselves had to adapt to the remote teaching modes, and this co-production of service was very well executed.
The event will take place at the prestigious world class sports Arena. Kigali Arena is the biggest indoor arena in East Africa. The iconic nature of this East African landmark is a mirror of the innovative nature of the University of Kigali. On a continent where several major Universities are still confining themselves to virtual graduations, UoK has taken a bold step to host its graduation in a 10,000-seater arena to ensure that all COVID-19 protocols are observed.
According to the Graduation Event Committee Chairman, CPA Doreen Njeru, the decision to host the Kigali arena was another manifestation of the student-centered nature of the University of Kigali.
Several thousand students are excited about the forthcoming graduation because of the life changing experience they had had at the University of Kigali.
The University a few years ago introduced extra short certified courses and professional programmes that enable students to graduate with more than a degree. This innovation has meant that many students are already becoming competitive in the global marketplace because of the extra certificates UoK is enabling them to acquire both at the graduate and undergraduate levels.
‘I’m happy with UoK School of Graduate Studies because it got me into the Flag ShipScrum training and certification in Rwanda which has helped me track and deliver my projects at work more efficiently and successfully” said Nadia Nyamuninga a graduating student from the Masters in Project Management Degree Programme. She noted further “I am so excited that I am now a Scrum Master Certified’. Nadia was so grateful to the Dean of Graduate School, Dr. Ronald Kwena who organized this life altering training which Nadia became a proud beneficiary of.
The UoK School of Graduate Studies is seeking to not only provide knowledge to its students but also to add value by opening opportunities to its students. Fred Ruzindana, an MBA Project management student also notes that; “The certification training was not only attended by Project management students but also other Masters students from Economics, Accounting and Finance, Supply chain management and Public administration.”
University of Kigali has also set aside several scholarships opportunities to the best graduates from this graduation who wish join its Graduate School. The first priority will be given to students who have graduated with first class Bachelors’ Degrees during this year’s ceremony.
