22 Dec Applying to Colleges
The number of high school graduates in Kenya has risen over the years and so has the demand for higher education. The middle level colleges have come in to fill this gap for otherwise qualified students who couldn’t make it to the Kenyan Universities. Applying to Kenyan Colleges has become quite tedious because of the mushrooming of the Colleges left, right and centre. Many students apply for courses in IT, Computer Science and Business because these are the skills which are high in demand at the moment. It is very hard to identify the Colleges but some guidelines might be useful in selecting the right College.
First, you should examine the facilities of the college you intend to attend. The best Kenyan Colleges usually have an array of facilities in order to make the learning of a student worthwhile. Some IT colleges in Kenya even go to the extent of providing a laptop for each student as well as unlimited internet connection. Similarly; the best Kenyan Computer Colleges give external exams in addition to their own internal exams. This gives the College validity and accreditation which is highly valued by the Kenyan employers. You would be amazed at how many Kenyan Colleges offer exams that many employers have no idea of. This can be a very traumatizing experience for a Student.
Though some computer Colleges in Kenya are widely acclaimed and recognized both at home and abroad, many offer such substandard education that one would be amazed at why they charge such ridiculous fees. It is for this reason that you should take extreme caution when applying to a Kenyan College.
