The admissions team represented the university at the annual Tanzania Commission for Universities (TCU) exhibition on Higher Education, Science and Technology at Mnazi Mmoja grounds in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, from 15-20 July. This event is part of TCU’s mandate to promote cooperation and networking among universities within and outside the United Republic of Tanzania. The team drawn from the Admission and Marketing departments used this opportunity to promote the University, publicize our core functions, drive enrollment and foster collaboration, partnerships, networks and linkages.
This event provided a good platform for students who wished to join the university as they had the chance to acquire their admissions letter at the exhibition stand. The prospective students were impressed by our presence in Tanzania as it made their enrollment much easier than they expected and gained trust as a result of our recognition by the TCU.
At our stand we had the opportunity to host the Tanzanian Minister of Education Hon. Prof. Joyce Ndalichako who was received by our Vice Chancellor Prof. Paul Zeleza who used the occasion to give her a brief overview of the institution including the marking of 50 years in providing quality education. We were also honored to host the Kenyan Ambassador to Tanzania, Hon. Amb. Dan Kazungu who was hosted by the Chief Admissions Officer Dr. George Lumbasi.
The week-long event was graced by Tanzania’s top government officials including the Prime Minister Hon. Kassim Majaliwa who officially opened the exhibition.
This year’s exhibition attracted universities and institutions of higher learning from Tanzania and other neighboring countries such a Kenya, Uganda and Botswana.
