MUST mourns Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

Mbarara University of Science and Technology joins the rest of the world to mourn the passing on of the longest serving monarch in United kingdom, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the Head of the Common Wealth.
MUST has benefited from the Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU) through scholarships to staff in PhDs and Masters programmes. Some of the notable staff who completed PhDs include Dr. Simon Arunga and Dr. Martin Karuhanga while Assoc. Prof. Gertrude Kiwanuka finished her postdoctorate. Furthermore, twelve staff have completed their Masters while five PhDs are currently supported. These scholarships provide life changing opportunities to promote positive change in their communities and beyond. For instance Dr. Arunga is the first eye doctor to receive a PhD in Ophthalmology in Uganda and he has been instrumental to MUST and the region.

Born on 21st April 1926, Her Majesty the Queen has lived 96 years, 70 of which she reigned after ascending to the throne in 1952. She has been succeeded by her son King Charles III.
On behalf of MUST, the Vice Chancellor Prof. Celestino Obua, University Council, entire top management, staff and students condole with the royal family and the ACU in grieving this great monarch!
