Admission of 10,000 Government Sponsored Students to Degree Courses in Private Universities

To All 2015 K.C.S.E. Candidates Who Scored a Mean Grade of B – of 58 and 59 Points for Boys and 56 and 57 Points for Girls

The Government of Kenya, through the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, has resolved to admit Government Sponsored Students to Private Universities with effect from 2016/2017 in order to increase access to University Education for Kenyans.

An additional 10,000 2015 K.C.S.E. candidates will be placed by Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service to Private Universities as Government Sponsored Students, in addition to those already placed in Public Universities.

The 10,000 students who will be placed in Private Universities will receive the same government financial support as those selected to join Public Universities.

The total number of 2015 K.C.S.E. candidates that will be admitted as Government Sponsored Students in 2016/2017 will therefore increase from 74,389 to 84,389.

This effectively lowers the Degree cut-off points for Government Sponsorship by 2 points to a B – of 58 points for boys and a B – of 56 points for girls for the 2015 K.C.S.E. candidates.

The Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service therefore wishes to announce to the candidates who scored a B – of 56 and 57 points (girls) and 58 and 59 points (boys) that the online application system will open for application for placement of Government Sponsored Students to Private Universities on Wednesday, August 24, 2016 at 0000 hours and will close on Wednesday, August 31, 2016 at midnight.

The system will be accessible through the Placement Service student's portal.

Note that this application is only for the unplaced 2015 K.C.S.E. candidates who scored a mean grade of B – of 56 and 57 points for girls and 58 and 59 points for boys.

Relevant guiding information such as Degree programmes available per Private University, subject clusters, similar programmes, weighted cluster points calculated by performance index as well as the application procedure may be accessed as downloads.

    In Summary

  • 67,790 students will join public universities as compared to 57,250 last year while 11, 523 candidates will join middle-level colleges.
  • Despite middle-level colleges having a capacity of 41,550, students who qualified to join them chose not to do so.
  • KUCCPS CEO John Muraguri says medical courses, architecture, engineering, computer science, actuarial science attracted the highest number of applications.

    79,700 Selected to Join Public Universities in September

    A total of 79,313 candidates who sat Form Four exams in 2014 have been selected to join 31 public universities and 50 middle-level colleges in September.

    After the final revision of courses, statistics from the Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) now indicate that 67,790 students will join public universities, compared with 57,250 last year, while 11,523 candidates will join middle-level colleges.

    Despite middle-level colleges having a capacity of 41,550, students who qualified to join them chose not to do so.

    KUCCPS Chief Executive Officer John Muraguri on Thursday said medical courses, architecture, engineering, computer science and actuarial science attracted the highest number of applications.

    Colleges Shunned

    However, only 316 candidates have been selected for medicine courses, with the University of Nairobi taking the highest number at 120.

    Kenyatta University took 50, Moi University (43), Egerton University (33), Jomo Kenyatta University of Science and technology (30) while Maseno University will receive 40 students.

    A total of 483,630 candidates sat for the exams in the 2014 and 3,073 scored A, 11,768 managed A- while 19,814 got B+.

    The students' move to shun the middle-level colleges is a setback to the government, which has been expanding them after some were converted to universities.

    This financial year, the government allocated Sh3 billion to technical training institutes.

    Negative Attitude

    Mr Muraguri blamed parents for the negative attitude students show towards technical colleges.

    “We have to encourage students to join TVET (Technical Vocational Education and Training) institutions. Parents should also change their perception on these institutions. At the moment, every person wants to join university yet we have limited space,” said Mr Muraguri.

    Kenyatta University has admitted the highest number of students at 5,942 while Kirinyaga University College will get the lowest at 534.

    Kenya Medical Training College will admit 4,860 students while Emining Technical Training Institute will admit 120 students.

    Affirmative Action

    Through affirmative action, Mr Muraguri said, 946 students from marginalised areas would join public universities while another 363 will join based on their gender.

    He added that 163 students with disabilities would also join the universities.

    “When we lowered the marks for university entry, it created an opportunity for many students to pursue courses that they had chosen,” he said.

    University vice-chancellors and other stakeholders are now set to meet on Tuesday to validate the placements. - Nation - July 16, 2015
