CONCLUSION AND SUMMARY

[conclusion image]

The University of Rwanda (UR) is a public Higher Learning Institution established by the law n° 71/2013 of 10/09/2013. It resulted from the merger of the former seven public Higher Learning Institutions (HLIs) into a single public University with six Colleges and nine campuses distributed across the country. The UR is a singular, multicampus institution offering a wide range of academic studies. As such, it provides opportunities for students to pursue a variety of programs – some that are quite specialized, others that are multidisciplinary and problem-based in focus – and to undertake their studies at different locations across the country, both through classes at designated campuses and through access to distance learning. All is explained in detail in this blog post.
