Mountain of The Moon In Deep Trouble

Mountains of the Moon University in Fort Portal is on the spot for advertising and enrolling students for a course that is not accredited by the National Council for Higher Education. 

 
This came to the limelight when up to 12-students who were enrolled for the Bachelor of Science in Midwifery Course in the academic year 2016/2017 failed to access internship placements after completing their final exams at the university.

They were reportedly told by the Uganda Nurses and Midwives Council –UNMC that the course is not accredited.     

Uganda Nurses and Midwives Council is the statutory regulator of nursing and midwifery. The Universities and Other Tertiary Institutions 2005 states that every university and every tertiary institution shall ensure that new programs of instruction are not commenced or new regulations effected without the prior consent of NCHE.  

Annette Kabanyaka, one of the affected student's faults the university administration for taking no steps to ensure that the course is accredited, long before the students were enrolled, and hoodwinked them with lecturers in order to get money out of them.

 The students have been paying 1.4 million Shillings every semester for the three-year course.  

Sauda Nabakema, another student who talked to this Radio says that they are now stranded because they cannot do anything without clearance from the Uganda Nurses and Midwives Council, which has already rejected them.
