KAMPALA | Victoria University has announced a partnership with an Indian-based academe, Ganpat University, as part of an effort to expand international collaboration and academic excellence.

Dr Lawrence Muganga, the Victoria University vice-chancellor, made the pronouncement on Thursday, saying the initiative is aimed at delivering a world-class education within the region.

The partnership will see students from both universities have unique opportunities to engage in cross-cultural learning experiences, gaining invaluable skills in the field of pharmaceuticals, as explained by Dr Muganga.

“Ganpat University and Victoria University are introducing joint programs, student exchanges, and global practical training at the Ganpat’s Pharmaceutical Plant in India alongside research opportunities,” Dr Muganga said in a statement released on Thursday.

Ganpat University is an Indian-based academe established in 2005, running postgraduate and research level programmes.

Ganpat has partnered with several other institutions of higher learning around the world, including Victoria University Australia.

The Indian institution has a proud history of delivering world-class master courses and achieving excellent placement outcomes.

The partnership with institutions like Victoria University in Kampala provides the institution with its international-standard teaching

facilities, infrastructure and student services.

The Ganpat University team was led by Dr Remi Mitra, the chief relations officer.

The partnership comes barely weeks after the university received an accreditation to be part of the six universities in Uganda accredited by the National Council for Higher Education to run the Bachelor of Pharmacy programme.

The university received the accreditation after meeting the rigorous standards set by the National Council for Higher Education (NCHE) and featuring an advanced pharmacy laboratory in the country.

Dr Muganga believes the new partnership will help the university to offer a high standard of education in the pharmaceutical field while reducing the financial burden on the students.

“Our objective is to deliver world-class education within our borders, reducing the financial burden of seeking it overseas. Those interested in the program can now enrich their education with our premier pharmacy program while exploring exciting opportunities abroad,” says Dr Muganga.

Victoria University said the collaboration brings joint programmes, student exchanges, and global practical training of our students at the Ganpat University Pharmaceutical plant and research opportunities.

"Elevate your education with our top-notch Pharmacy programme and explore exciting opportunities abroad," the university said.
