Information for Uganda students wishing to study a postgraduate course at Cranfield University.

Cranfield University has a vibrant international community and is historically a popular destination for students from Uganda. We currently have 16 students from Uganda studying with us.

As an exclusively postgraduate university, Cranfield represents a unique offering for Ugandan students thinking of studying in the UK. Ugandan students at Cranfield benefit from excellent teaching delivered by our world-renowned academics, state-of-the art facilities and real-life industry projects with leading global organisations. 

In 2015, Cranfield University has received the prestigious award in recognition of its education and research on water and sanitation for developing countries over a 25-year period. One of the projects acknowledged as part of the award includes the innovative Nano Membrane Toilet which the university has pioneered in conjunction with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Cranfield provides a professional working environment and our Ugandan students also enjoy campus life and get involved in a wide variety of activities run by Cranfield Student Association.
