Victoria University has unveiled dubbed “Vu Grad Festival- Level Up”, which will mark its 6th Graduation Ceremony to be held at Speke Resort Muyonyo.
The event will take place on 3rd September 2022 with all of East Africa’s top entertainers and musicians.
Vice Chancellor Prof Lawrence Muganga stated that the graduation ceremony is a festival. It’s going to be graduation like no other in Uganda or even any African University. It is a graduation festival, with an intent to showcase.
He added,”We are changing tradition by ditching the old, sleepy, boring graduations as you know them; and introducing an experience where all East Africa’s top entertainers and musicians get to take part in marking a new step for our students to join the world of work,”
Patrick Idringi, best known as Salvador, who also addressed the presser on behalf of the entertainers, commended the University’s management for being a mirror of Uganda’s education sector and wondered why other Universities had not thought about such a concept before.
Muganga also hinted at how they came up with the VU Grad Festival after students asked the University management to change the culture of graduations; from a boring lot to something enjoyable.
Entrance for the general public is UGX50,000 and students, whether from Victoria University or other institutions as long as they present Identity Cards, will only pay UGX20,000.
