Uganda’s mighty Victoria University has launched another big deal dubbed ‘Learn German-Work In Germany’, a program that will connect its students with exciting job opportunities in Information Technology (IT) and Tourism & Hospitality sectors in Germany.
The program was launched on 20th May 2023 at the University’s main campus at Victoria Towers, Plot No. 1-13 Jinja Road. The launch was graced by the University’s Vice Chancellor Prof.Lawrence Muganga and Mr. Jorg Schafer CEO, Arbeitsvermittlung Westfalen-Lippe (AWL), a job recruitment company based in German.
At this launch, Prof Muganga appreciated the University’s partnership with Mr Jorg Schafer’s AWL company saying this will save many students who were at risk of living a jobless life.
“The possibilities for our students have expanded, and we are thrilled about this remarkable achievement,” said Prof Muganga adding, “Ugandans abroad send home over $1.2bn in a year. We also want to create jobs for our graduates. This is the reason we have gone for the Overseas Job Placement Programme in the United Kingdom and Germany.”
Prof Muganga said that the University’s students have already secured companies abroad willing to employ them as soon as they graduate. Apart from Germany, in United Kingdom, they have partnered with CWG Recruit to support their graduate nurses and midwives to secure employment placements.
Meanwhile, Mr Schäfer in his remarks said when you have an opportunity to work in Germany, you can easily fly out, with your family; and they will all be availed a medical cover, while in Germany.
At the same launch, AWL established a permanent German Language testing center at Victoria University, enabling Ugandans to learn and obtain the required language proficiency for working in Germany.
Now, if you don’t want to miss a chance of working in Germany, better rush and secure a place at Victoria University. The University has already kicked off registration of July Intake for the 2023 academic calendar.
Victoria University which is now the leading university in Uganda stands out as a pivot of academic excellence, offering a fresh and intellectually thriving environment that nurtures critical and progressive thinkers and pushes pedagogical boundaries.
