Earlier on, we ran a story that LDC would be admitting students in more than one intake following the announcement for the 1st intake applications in August 2020.
Yesterday, a list of the students admitted for that intake was released. However out of that list, a group of other students were differed to the 2nd intake for later.
Campus Bee has received a 12 paged list of 722 applicants for the post graduate bar course of the Law Development Centre whose applications were differed to the 2nd intake that has been announced for December. The reasons for the deferrals are not stated.
According to an LDC statement, LDC will admit them, and new applicants in the 2nd intake expected to be a total of 750 students. However, it is uncertain if LDC will stick to that number as already the differed students amount to 722 students almost leaving no room for future applicants. The Centre should expect a big number of applicants from the students that are just sitting their finalist exams, should their results be ready by then.
It is also possible that LDC will differ some of the applicants in the 2nd intake to the next academic year 2021/2022, just like it did with the previous admissions.
“Students whose universities confirm their qualifications and submit their names to LDC by 15 December 2020 will be considered for admission to the 2nd intake”, reads the statement in part. The admissions in the 2nd intake will be for only Lira Campus with 250 students and 500 for Mbarara Campus.
The applicants for the 2nd intake will also include those that were not able to apply in the 1st intake.
