"This is the first time we shall be graduating doctorate students, an indication that the university is maturing in terms of academics. The numbers are still few because the courses are expensive," Prof Katunguka said.

A doctorate student at Kyambogo has to pay about Shs5m per semester, according to Prof Katunguka and a few can afford it individually.

The overall best students are George William Kasaazi, offering bachelor of information technology and computing with 4.88 CGPA and Benardette Nakintu from Bachelor of information systems with 4.83 CGPA.
