There is general compulsory schooling for children between the ages of 6 and 13. The educational institutions are supported by state and private institutions (especially mission schools). Following the British model, the seven-year elementary school is followed by the four-year lower secondary level or a three-year vocational school. Secondary level I is followed by two-year upper secondary level or teacher training colleges and technical schools.

In addition to the oldest and largest Makerere University (founded in 1922 as a technical center, university since 1970) in Kampala, Uganda also has numerous other state and private universities.


The population is made up of around 50 ethnic groups, two thirds of which belong to the Bantu peoples. The largest groups are the Ganda, Nkole, Soga and Kiga. In the north, Nilotic languages dominate; largest groups there are the Teso, Langoand Acholi. Central Sudan languages ​​are spoken in the far northwest, including from the Lugbara. There are also Asian, European and Arab minorities.

The population density is high in regional comparison with an average of 213 residents per km 2 (2018). The north and especially the northeast of the country is almost uninhabited. The majority of the population lives in scattered settlements in the countryside, especially in the south and east as well as on the Elgon. Only 17% of the population live in cities, more than a third in the catchment area of ​​the capital Kampala.

The conflict with the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) in the north of the country made over 2 million people internally displaced at times. On the other hand, around 1.58 million refugees from South Sudan, Somalia and the Democratic Republic of the Congo were in Uganda at the end of 2017.

The annual population growth is extremely high. In 2018, the fertility rate was 5.62 births per woman (for comparison: in Germany it is 1.46). Violence, including sexual violence, against women and underage girls is widespread despite a legal ban (since 2010). Even female genital mutilation is still practiced, especially in the north of the country, despite the ban. Homosexuality is a criminal offense in Uganda. In rural areas in particular, the health care system is insufficiently developed. The HIV infection rate in adults (age group 15 to 49 years) is 5.9%. The Ebola virus disease has also claimed lives.


The constitution guarantees religious freedom and expressly excludes the establishment of a state religion. All religious communities are legally equal. According to the 2014 census (last available official data), around 85% of the population are Christians: 39.3% belong to the Catholic Church (four archdioceses with 16 suffragan dioceses, one military ordinariate) and 32% to the Anglican Church (province of Uganda, 33 dioceses); the rest are committed to (post-) Reformation religious communities (especially Pentecostals / Evangelicals [11.1%] and Baptists [0.3%]) as well as to small independent churches and special communities with reference to Christianity ( Seventh-day Adventists [1.7%]). The small number of Orthodox Christians (0.1%) belong to the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of East Africa.

The almost 14% Muslims among the population are predominantly Sunnis. The Bahais form a small religious minority. Only a fraction of the population adheres to indigenous African religions as a solitary entity (0.1%). However, elements of traditional religious practice are also widespread among followers of the two world religions (estimated at up to a quarter of the population).
