National Council for Higher Education (NCHE) has approved Bishop Stuart University to conduct Open Distance and e-learning (ODeL) following its inspection visit to the University on the 8th of September 2020.
The team that also inspected the Facilitated Academic Resource (FAR) learning Centre – a project that was established in 2018 by Bishop Stuart University in partnership with Trinity Western University, was impressed by the institution’s readiness to take on the Emergency Open Distance and e-Learning (ODeL).
In a letter addressed to the Vice-Chancellor Prof. Maud Kamatenesi Mugisha, dated 2nd October 2020, NCHE granted Bishop Stuart University permission to roll out emergency ODeL for all accredited programmes.
In this regard, Bishop Stuart University has joined a few Chartered Universities in Uganda to be officially permitted by the National Council for Higher Education to conduct online teaching and learning.
We thank the Lord for this milestone.
