Tanzania: CUHAS to Award First Undergraduates

Mwanza — CATHOLIC University of Health and Allied Sciences will this weekend hold its 5th graduation ceremony in which undergraduate students would be conferred degrees for the first time by the institution.

The Catholic University of Health and Allied Sciences (CUHAS) is now a full independent university. CUHAS Vice Chancellor, Professor Jacob Mtabaji said that the first students who were pursuing degree courses at the institution will graduate after it ceased to be an affiliate college of Saint Augustine University of Tanzania (SAUT).

"The graduates of Health and Allied Sciences degrees will be the first group of six graduates in nursing education," the professor said.

He noted that 183 students will be graduating and among them 85 will be awarded with diploma in medicine, 64 doctoral degrees, 30 master degrees in medicine and one with a PhD. Professor Mtabaji also denied reports that the graduation had been called off to mourn the death of Shinyanga Diocese Bishop Aloysius Balina who died and was laid to rest last week.
