I take this opportunity to thank you for taking such a decision to choose our University. This is the start of an exhilarating journey of knowledge and discovery as you work towards obtaining a qualification that will prepare you for your future career.

You will be part of us and will play a vital role in ensuring that our University increases its pace in achieving its goals. The UR Students are involved in a wide range of activities alongside academics. Apart from sports and leisure in their class free time, the Students are involved in Community service activities. The Society is a witness to the Services offered to them by the Faculty of Law Students through the Legal Clinic, as well as the reproductive health sessions conducted by Medicine Students in Secondary schools.

Houses have been constructed to the Genocide widows in Gisagara District all courtesy of the Students; these are just a few examples. You will be a new strength and an important resource that will join us and we trust your potential. You are free to contact our Dean of Students’ Office for more information regarding students welfare.

I welcome you once again to the University of Rwanda and wish you a successful experience with us.

Dr Usta Kaiitesi
