Nobel Knowledge Building
Competition to join the first year in the technical education at Nobel Knowledge Building in Luweero.
Weeks of introduction
The first 4-5 weeks will be an introduction course. These weeks will comprise both theoretical and practical lessons. The introduction weeks are the first weeks of the one year study. The weeks will give an introduction to the kind of skills a student will get when studying at the school. Additionally, the weeks will give a refresher of English and Maths on lower secondary school level. For the students that lack a formal exam from lower secondary school (theoretical skills equivalent to English and Mathematics on lower secondary school (O-level), Grade C (better than 6.99)) get a possibility to sit a equivalent test.
