THE MOST SELECTED COURSE IN VARIOUS PUBLIC AND PRIVATE UNIVERSITIES

The Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) has selected 278,006 students to join various public and private universities.

The placement board’s CEO Agnes Mercy Wahome said of these, 220,684 were placed in public universities for degree programs, while 57, 322 will join private universities.

Some 17,005 others meanwhile met the threshold to join university technical and vocational education and training (TVET) institutes while 733,063 were placed in Ministry of Education (MoE) TVET institutions.

Non-Ministry of Education TVET institutions were allocated 19,752 students.

Another 11,598 students will pursue diplomas in primary teacher education while 2,210 others take diplomas in secondary teacher education.

The Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC) will in the meantime get 17,172 students in its 71 campuses nationwide.

Dr Wahome noted that of the applications the placement board received from students who attained the C+ minimum university entry grade, 76.2 per cent opted for degree courses while the rest opted for diplomas.

“Bachelor of Education attracted the highest number of applicants and male applicants continued to dominate placement to degree programmes, sustaining a trend that has been observed since the beginning of the central placement system,” she noted.

In contrast, female students have made up the majority of those placed in TVET institutions since 2020.
