The University of Nairobi has launched an online application system. The varsity collaborated with Kenya Commercial Bank, KCB, in streamlining the system’s payment details.
Through this system, those interested to study at the University can now apply from anywhere in the world, pay in the specific University accounts, and track their application.
Prof. Peter Mbithi, Vice chancellor, said that the launch of this system is in line with the management’s objective. He congratulated the technical team at the University of Nairobi and the KCB team that had to work together to make this a success.
Dr. Sam Nyaoke, speaking on behalf of KCB CEO, Joshua Oigara said that being a UoN alumni, he understands the process that manual applications and tracking the student has to go through. He said that this system has integrated a lot of the processes and both the University and its customers will benefit from it.
Prof. Henry Mutoro, Deputy Vice Chancellor, Academic Affairs, said that this online application system will ease and make distance learning more effective. The system has the available courses announced, the application dates and deadline, the reporting date and entry requirement.
The senate, deans and directors from all the colleges of the University were present during the launch.
