The Erasmus+ programme is a European Union scheme for enhancing mobility of students for a rounded global education experience. There are over 4000 institutions of higher learning in 37 countries participating in the Erasmus+ exchange programme, which additionally provides mobility opportunities in training as well as for the youth.

The four students who departed for Austria on Saturday February 2, 2019 include: Florence Nabukalu (Masters in Procurement and Logistics Management); Martin Kayira (Masters in commercial Art and Design, with specialization in Architectural Design); Vincent Yamulemye (Bachelors in Tourism and Hospitality); and, Takia Nakandi (Bachelor of Tourism).

The Vice Chancellor, Prof. Wilson Muyinda Mande, asked them to look to the practical aspects of their programmes so as to benefit business and industry. He urged them to also appreciate the culture where they will be resident for over five months.

The Dean of the School of Commercial, Industrial Art and Design, Mr. Charles Kaggwa, who is also in charge of international collaboration for Nkumba University asked the students to be worthy ambassadors of the University.
