University of Kigali (UoK) has once again taken the lead in enhancing professional capacity-building in Rwanda by producing the top students nationally per subject/paper in the November/ December 2023 Certified Accounting Technician (CAT) exams. Out of the 11 CAT papers registered, UoK produced 7 top students nationally per paper. UoK also registered pass rates which were above the national pass rates for CAT.

The University of Kigali’s Board of Promoters, management and staff take this opportunity to recognize and appreciate the 7 CAT students who emerged the best nationally and all UoK CAT students for achieving results above the national pass rates.

The exemplary performance by UoK students in the just-released results is a testimony to the quality tuition that is provided at the University. The success is attributed to the adequate, competent and high-quality teaching staff with international experience who deliver the professional courses.

The University further provides study notes and past examination question banks to all students registered for professional courses. Additionally, UoK offers discount on tuition fees to all internal undergraduate and graduate students pursuing professional programmes.

As a result of the standards implemented, UoK has consistently delivered pass rates which are above the national pass rates in exams over the past 14 examination sittings. These high pass rates are a major contributor to the increase in the enrollment of students pursuing professional programmes.

The continuous choice of UoK at every examination sitting by both private and Government sponsored staff is an evidence of the vital role UoK plays in the enhancement of professional capacity-building in Rwanda and the entire East African Region.

The University in partnership with the Government of Rwanda has also been offering Certified Public Accounting (CPA) and Certified Accounting Technician (CAT) training to all Government Accountants and Internal Auditors. From August 2016 to date, the programme has attracted over 3,000 Government Staff. Apart from the certification, it is proven that all the staff who have gone through the tuition process have had a significant increase in productivity and the country has benefited tremendously.

UoK is committed to enhancing training, professionalism and capacity-building across all Public Financial Management (PFM) disciplines. The University is fostering valuable partnerships with relevant stakeholders to continuously ensure that this huge deficit is filled.
