This programme is intended for students from countries whose secondary school qualifications are not considered equivalent to Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education (UACE) but permit admission into higher education in those countries. Such students must apply and enroll for HEC and pass before they are re-admitted for degree or diploma programmes depending on the level of their performance. Students who have successfully completed the UACE or its equivalent but who may not have attained sufficient grades to enroll for Diploma or Degree programmes may opt to enroll for HEC to qualify for the programmes.
