Mature Age Entry Examination

In order to give an opportunity to well qualified Tanzanian candidates who wish to study at the University of Bukoba, but who do not possess qualifications which satisfy the Universitys Direct Entry requirements, the University of Bukoba offers an alternative entry scheme in the form of a special Entrance Examination. Paper I will consist of papers of a general character for which specific preparations are not possible. Paper II questions will be designed by individual faculties and the student will have to satisfy the requirements of the faculty in which he or she intends to study.

Eligible candidates in this category must satisfy the following stipulations:

  • 25 years of age or older on October 1 of the year in which admission is sought

  • at least three credits in approved subjects at the Form IV Examinations

The university recognizes the value of working experience and life skills in the pursuit of a degree. The application of each student in the Mature Age category will be considered on its own merit, and admission will be subject to successful performance in a Mature Age Entrance Examination.

Application Procedures

Contact the Registrar for an application form.

Registration

At the beginning of the academic year, all students will be required to produce evidence of sponsorship, otherwise they will be expected to pay full tuition and University fees for one Semester, by the beginning of the Semester, before they can be permitted to use the University facilities.

Payment of fees should be made within three months after receipt of the offer of admission, but not after registration, or adequate and acceptable arrangements to that effect should be made before a candidate is registered.  Failure to pay within the specified period results in the withdrawal of registration.
