    I am a Ugandan that applied for Masters in economic policy and planning but got transferred upcountry(west nile) in March 2011 before getting my admission letter. I work 6 days a week and when I got a free working day never found faculty registrar in early October. I’m however back to Kampala and assured of staying in the city as long as I still work for this company and wish to renew my bid but fearful of being turned down. does light still shine on my dream of embarking on the same post graduate course this coming (2012/2013) academic year as I can only settle for this course and only at MUK?
