We take this opportunity to welcome you all to The Presbyterian University of East Africa (PUEA) as you make choices to begin a new journey of academia at the university level.

We are indeed delighted to welcome you to be part of the PUEA family which will be your second home for the period you will take in your studies. We would like to assure you that by choosing PUEA you will be making the right choice of a vehicle to move you through this phase of your academic journey.

The University values the need for guidance and necessity to give students opportunities to explore and deepen their faith and integrate it in learning. Through weekly chapel devotions, students and staff are able to get spiritual nourishment and focus on spiritual matters hence bringing the PUEA community together. In addition, students facing social or academic challenges are offered psychological and/or emotional support by university chaplaincy and counsellors.

By the end of training at PUEA, we expect our students to be servants of humanity, job creators and change agents in the society.
