State to revise university admission letters in August

0

Students set to join universities will receive revised fee structures indicating a specific amount payable per household starting July 31st.

Appearing before the National Assembly Education Committee, Higher Education Principal Secretary Beatrice Muganda says the government will only revise the admission letters after categorization is done to establish how much the government will pay per student.

This comes even as MPs took issue with the Commission for University Education for validating some universities to admit more students than their capacity.

The PS indicated the new letters will be sent starting July 31st after the Higher Education loans board completes the categorization process to establish how much the government will pay per students.

MPs also called for linking the Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service with the HELB system to ease the admission process.

The Committee stepped down the Commission for University Education for validating some universities to admit more students than their capacity.

The MPs will engage the higher education stakeholders next week on the mean testing instruments to be applied in the categorization of students.
