INFORMATION PLATFORM FOR FOREIGN STUDENTS

Remarks by the Vice Chancellor – Professor HellicyC. Ng’ambi (PhD)

You are warmly welcome to the Mulungushi University page and may I hasten to thank you for finding time to read through this page. At this juncture, allow me to inform you that Mulungushi University is the third public university in Zambia which came onto the Zambian higher education scene in 2008. Since then, it has grown in leaps and bounds and it is today recognized as one of the famous Universities both home and abroad.

As Mulungushi University, we pride ourselves in our RARE (Responsible, Accountable, Relevant, Ethical) value system which makes us indeed a RARE university. Arising from this unique RARE value system, we put high premium in producing graduates of high moral standing; that value humanity and that has respect for public resources, that is corrupt-free, and that is morally upright. And in order to inculcate these attributes into our students, we have a signature course that is mandatory to all our students as they enter their first year called “Sustainable Behaviour in Society”

Dear prospective students and sponsors, may I disclose to you that due to our industry-tailored programmes, graduates of Mulungushi University are the most sought by industry. This will be the case even for you if you chose to study with us.

Other reasons why you should study with us are as follows:

  • We have a wells stocked Library
  • We offer furnished hostels
  • We have a serene environment conducive for learning and teaching away from the hustle and bustle of town
  • We have highly qualified and experience academic and administrative staff to attend to all your needs and queries.

To buttress it up, Zambia is a very peaceful and friendly country and Mulungushi University will make you feel home away from home.

I personally had opportunities to study both in Zambia and at international universities.I remember my own days studying abroad when I was a graduate student. I am still grateful for the opportunity to 

have spent time living in another country, rather than merely passing through as a visitor. I not only learned a great deal about other cultures, but I also learned a lot about myself and about my abilities. Congratulations for choosing to push yourself in pursuit of that kind of experience. I therefore, wish you the best as you go through our website and try to pick the programme of your choice. Please, do so!
