Welcome to Clarke International University.
More than a year ago, the University Council, after thoughtful consideration, decided to change the name of the university from International Health Sciences University (IHSU) to Clarke International University (CIU) to better reflect the scope of a diverse and innovative curriculum beyond health. We, therefore, embarked on this process which has culminated in effecting this change after all the appropriate approvals. The launch of CIU took place on Tuesday, March 6 th, 2018 and was presided over by the Speaker of the House of Parliament of the Republic of Uganda, Hon Rebecca Alitwala Kadaga. A certificate for the change of name was secured from the Presidents’ office, signed February 26 th , 2018.
IHSU has a long-standing history of being a niche university offering only health-related training. IHSU’s early beginnings originated out of a Nursing School and over the years evolved to comprise other Schools including: the Institute of Public Health and Management (IPHM), Institute of Allied Health Sciences (IAHS), Family Medicine, ICT in Health and the School of Nursing and Midwifery (SONM). Our curriculum has been innovative but limited in scope. The new brand of the university allows us to build on IHSU’s successful legacy but also diversify our program offerings. A name change will encourage continued program expansion and targeted student growth (which has seen a sharp decline in the last three years), and will more accurately reflect our values-based, interdisciplinary, research-engaged approach to educating students in areas of study including Health Sciences, Business, Applied Technology, Education etc. The first of these schools is the recently launched School of Business and Applied Technology (SoBAT), which is currently admitting its first cohort of students for the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA), PG Diploma Health Technology Innovation, and Certificate in Applied ICT & Leadership for the April intake.
