Up to 5000 students of Makerere University Business School MUBS are set to miss out on graduation due to the indefinite closure of Makerere University.

MUBS holds its graduation ceremony together with MAK and cannot hold a separate function without the Senate approval of Makerere University.

Since the university is closed, the senate cannot decide on the issue.

Prof John Dumba Sentamu, MAK’s Vice Chancellor revealed recently that the university’s 67th graduation ceremony would not take place in January subsequently affecting its affiliate MUBS.

Meanwhile, Over 100, 000 Senior Six leavers are in a dilemma over applications to Makerere University due to its indefinite closure.

This means the students could not apply for government scholarship next year as the university was closed before they could get the Public Universities Joint Admissions Board (PUJAB) forms.

The Secondary School Head Teachers Association has asked the students and teachers to be patient since the situation is beyond their control.

The association said the schools have been equally inconvenienced by the closure since they will have to recall students when the university reopens.
