University of Nairobi

The University of Nairobi uses the 'learning centred' approach in its programmes. This has enabled our institution to create an environment that graduates students with well-developed intellectual skills in their field of specialization. They also have a foundation of broad knowledge, effective written and oral communication skills, a strong ethical base, a sense of civil responsibility, proficiency in the use of technology, a global perspective and desire to purse lifelong learning.

As a result, the University of Nairobi produces graduates not only equipped for the jobs in the market but also well armed to cope with life itself. True to our tradition, the students are urged to cultivate a sense of independent thinking and responsible action.

The challenge of the students then is to ensure that they maintain the University's position as the leading public university in Kenya.
