Dear Ministry of Defence / Uganda Peoples Defence Forces (UPDF),
am a student expecting to graduate with a diploma in computer science this year probably in October. i have to questions to ask
1. can i join the army using a recommendation letter with the statement of results obtained because the university usually issues out academic transcripts 5 months after graduation
2. if at all i succeed with the recruitment, do i qualify for cadet course after the period of getting drilled through the military training?

Thank you for contacting us mr Wasajja Wilson. Our advise to you is for
you to proceed and acquire your diploma. It is safer for you to come for
recruitment when you have the full paper not testimonials or any other
thing. Take your time because we shall always recruit. It is not automatic
that u will join cadet after recruitment training. There are those who
came before you and are waiting for the same chance. If you are destined
for military service you need to think of service above self before it
becomes a job.
