Information about the Uganda SLT Program
There is a 3 year Bachelor's degree in Speech and Language Therapy (SLT) currently taught at Makerere University, Kampala, Uganda. It is the only Bachelor's degree in SLT in East and Central Africa and has now trained its first graduate SLTs who qualified in 2010, and the second cohort who graduated in 2012.
SLT is going from strength to strength across the continent and it is now time to expand our programme by attracting a wide range of students from across Africa. This will ensure the spread of SLT services to meet the needs of people with communication and swallowing difficulties.
For more information on admission to the program see Makerere University Admissions Office (www.mak.ac.ug). Applicants are required to apply in writing, plus go through a short interview process to be eligible for a student place in the program.
Please find attached information about the course (brochure). Please feel free to forward this information to anybody you may know who may be interested in applying to become a Speech and Language Therapist or any organisation who may be interested in training their staff or sponsoring a student from their country.
