Commission of University Education has rejected 133 courses that have an increased enrolment of 10,000 slots in various Universities.
The students who are currently pursuing these courses may have to discontinue as those who have graduated are being blocked out of the job market.
Among the universities offering the unapproved courses are;
- Tom Mboya University college offers 25 rejected courses.
- Garissa University offers 10 rejected courses.
- Alupe University offers 10 rejected courses.
- The Great Lakes University of Kisumu offers 8 rejected courses.
- Kenya Highlands Evangelical University offers 8 rejected courses.
- Lukenya offers 6 rejected courses.
- Jaramogi Oginga Odinga of Science and Technology offers 6 rejected courses.
The Commission of University Education also declined to approve four courses at both Kenyatta University and Karatina University and three courses also rejected at Moi University.
Vice Chancellors who spoke to The Standard accused the commission of being insensitive as most of the courses were already being taught.
The commission’s CEO, Mwenda Ntarangwi, addressed the panic by the institutions explaining that the body was still engaging with affected Universities.
“This is still an ongoing process and we are in consultation with Universities,” the Professor stated.
