Lira University has released the list of admissions into the Medicine Programme, a tight race that has left out hundreds due to few slots given by the National Council for Higher Education (NCHE).
At the University’s Appointment Board Meeting on Tuesday (26th September2023), 40 students were admitted under Direct and Diploma schemes.
The Vice Chancellor, Prof. Jasper Ogwal Okeng noted that the students were admitted on merit. “We cherish professionalism and work ethics. We have a name and legacy to keep, the reason we cannot bend the admission criteria and policy,” Prof. Ogwal Okeng observes.
Prof. Ogwal Okeng lauded the University staff for the zeal and passion they have in successfully pursuing the Bachelor of Medicine.
