Makerere University calls off scientific internship until further Notice

Makerere University has suspended internship programs for all undergraduate students, a deviation from a recent proposal to conduct them scientifically.

The management, in the wake of COVID-19, had approved modalities for implementing internship programs and recess with flexibility to allow students to carry out field projects remotely while observing the Ministry of Health Standard operating procedures (SOPs) and utilizing available online and offline mechanisms.

This mode of the internship program has got mnumerous concerns from sections of the public politicizing it which has led the management to resolve and halt the exercise pending further consultations.
