MTN Uganda offers University Students free access to their universities online learning platforms

MTN Uganda has zero rated a number of Universities online learning platforms allowing students and lecturers free access to study at home during this period of the COVID 19 lockdown.

This means that no data charges will apply to these educational websites as students and lecturers will be able to utilise them to continue with learning and teaching from home.

Like all other education institutions, the universities officially closed on March 20 after a directive from President Yoweri Museveni that all places of mass concentration suspend their operations to prevent the spread of Covid19.

Below is a list of the learning platforms that have been zero rated.

Makerere University Vice Chancellor Prof Barnabas Nawangwe has lauded telecommunications giant for this gesture saying it will go a long way in enabling students catch up on lost study time as they will now have access to the study materials at no cost.

 “Our negotiations with MTN Uganda yielded a lot of fruit as the telecom company has accepted to zero rate six of our online learning platforms. We applaud them for this. I now urge our students and lectures to take advantage of this opportunity,” he said.
