Note: In March this year, Makerere University in conjunction with the Confucius Institute Headquarters in Beijing and the University of Xiangtan in Hunan Province, China signed a memorandum of understanding to establish a Confucius Institute. The Confucius Institute will offer credit courses in Chinese to Makerere University students, and short courses to staff and the general public who are interested in learning Chinese for all purposes. It will also be a centre for promoting cultural and business ties between the people of Uganda and China, and will thus have a component of a vibrant cultural centre. The Institute will open many opportunities for staff, students and the general public who wish to pursue further studies, research and business opportunities in China.
