Kampala International University (KIU) Admissions 2021/2022

Established in 2001, KIU has made her presence in Uganda and the East African region very impactful, with a wide range of Academic Programs, two Campuses in Uganda and one in Tanzania (now an autonomous University known as Kampala International University in Tanzania-KIUT).  KIU Colleges, Faculties, Schools and Institutes attract both Ugandan and International students and Staff. 

KIU is a fast growing institution attributing its growth to the vision and zeal of Board of Trustees, the University Council, and a steadfast Management team under my Leadership, to ensure that the University reaches new heights of higher education delivery not only in Uganda but, also in the entire African Region as a University of repute.

With a vibrant Management team, a dedicated  staff and studious students, KIU has over the past 18 years superseded the imagination of many, and by January 2019, being ranked the best and premier Private University and  the 5th best University overall in Uganda. The investment in infrastructure, financial, material and human resources is undoubtedly parallel to none.
