As a private university in East Africa, St. Augustine International University (SAIU) is committed to providing quality education grounded in a culture of developing hands-on skills for job creation and job markets. With a strong ambition and desire to address the various challenges that have afflicted the higher education sector 

We use student-centered methods of instruction to promote students’ own knowledge search and discovery with assistance and involvement of our highly qualified and experienced lecturers as guides and facilitators of the teaching and learning process. Our state of the art laboratory equipment, well stocked library and communication facilities facilitate and promote quality education and research among students and enhance continuing academic development of staff as well.

SAIU is a research driven University and is developing a number of research centres to contribute to global research issues affecting the biomedical, Engineering, Agriculture, Law, Business and socio-economic development of communities. It is through research that we as SAIU seek to provide a fountain of knowledge for innovations and discoveries to change the livelihoods of communities in the region.

SAIU has four fully fledged colleges and eleven academic schools all offering a wide range of quality programmes designed to address the needs of the job market across the world as well as the skills gaps among graduates in the region. All our programmes are accredited by the National Council for Higher Education and we are committed to

We take pride in quality and we strive to impart the values of quality in our students. Our diverse team of highly qualified and experienced staff strive to ensure that our graduate is comparable to none other.

As a Vice Chancellor, I take pride in the certainty that the typical SAIU graduate is well equipped to stand out academically, practically and morally, to serve his/her community with unquestionable commitment and to create jobs and wealth.

As you navigate this website, you will find the detailed description of all our programmes, the information about our staff and students as well as the research publications of our staff that I am sure you will enjoy reading. While we have endeavoured to make this website as detailed as possible, I also take the pleasure to invite you to our campus on Bunga Hill in Kampala where you will get a practical feel of our conducive learning environment. I look forward to interacting with you.

Returns/Agreements which require the signature of the Vice-Chancellor/Head of Institution should be provided a hard copy to Bright M. This should be accompanied by a covering note to the VC outlining the document’s purpose and confirming that it has been checked and approved by the relevant school/department.  Once signed the department will be notified that the document is ready for collection.  If an official stamp is required on the document this can be added when collecting.

If time is very short it is sometimes possible to issue a document with the Vice-Chancellor’s e-signature on her agreement by email.

Where a letter of support is required for an application for a grant etc, a draft letter should be emailed to David Powell (admission@saiu.ac.ug) together with supporting documentation.  A letter will then be produced in the Vice-Chancellor’s house style.  Once the letter has been signed this will be scanned back to the department for inclusion in the application.  If the hard copy is required, this can be collected from the OVC office.

All requests for meetings or phone calls should be directed by email to Prof. Nzarubara Gabriel (Nzarubara@saiu.ac.ug).  It is helpful if you can provide a brief outline of what you need to see the Vice-Chancellor about.  You will then be contacted with some possible dates.  Meetings with the Vice-Chancellor take place in her office (139 Registry).

All other communications to the Vice-Chancellor should be made by email to (vicechancellor@saiu.ac.ug).  Depending on the nature of your query, it may be that the Vice-Chancellor will ask another senior colleague to respond to you.
