The Vice-Chancellor of the Catholic University of Malawi Rev.Fr. Dr. George Buleya has challenged new generic students for the June 2021 intake to work hard for them to graduate at the University.
Speaking during the opening of orientation sessions for the new students, the Vice-Chancellor urged students to take their studies “very seriously” for them to complete their undergraduate degrees.
“Please, priorities your studies, the rest should follow later. I know this is the University and we don’t tell students that this time, go and study, however you need to work hard because if you don’t, you will be withdrawn,” said Rev.Fr. Dr. Buleya.
The Vice-Chancellor further urged the students to adhere to the rules and regulations of the University during their four-year academic journey.
Concurring with the Vice-Chancellor, Director of Academic Affairs, Rev. Fr. Dr. Wilfred Sumani said the University will strive to give quality education to the new students.
The Director of Academic Affairs added that the University will continue striving to take a holistic education approach that aims to educate the whole person, beyond core academics.
The new students selected for the June 2021 intake, will have their first semester run from June to September this year.
Students will be back on campus in October for their second semester that will run-up to December this year.
Over one thousand students have been selected to study for various programmes offered at the university in seven faculties.
The university has 32 programmes that are accredited by the National Council of Higher Education (NCHE).
