KU Kericho Campus is strategically located in Kericho Town at formerly Mid-West Hotel, along Kericho-Nakuru Highway. The campus is directly opposite Kericho County Assembly. The serene, evergreen and cool environment of the campus is most conducive for students’ learning for both undergraduate and post-graduate programmes. Since its inception on 7th September 2013, the campus has grown in leaps and bounds.
August 2013 saw the first ever introduction of Institutional Based Program (IBP) session on our campus, with 7 students admitted for Master of Arts (MA) in Religious Studies. September 2013 Intake for the regular students followed immediately humbly with three undergraduate programmes: Bachelor of Education BEd. (Arts), 14 students, Diploma (Primary Teacher Education -PTE), 10 students and Bachelor of Commerce, 10 students. Two post graduate programmes took off: Master of Business Administration (MBA) and MA (Gender and Development Studies). MBA has grown over time to a cumulative total of 137 students. Indeed, during the 35th Graduation to be held on 20th December 2013, the pioneer MBA class of 12 students specializing in Entrepreneurship will be graduating!
The December 2013 IBP Session has given more muscles to our profile at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The former has four programmes running: BEd (Arts), BEd (PTE), Diploma (PTE) and BEd (Special Needs Education -SNE), totaling to 36 students. The latter has eight programmes: MA (English and Linguistics), MA (Literature), MA (History), MA (Geography), MA (Religious Studies), MEd. (Early Childhood Education - ECE), MEd. (Special Needs Education-SNE) and MEd. (Curriculum Development), totaling to 91 students.
January 2014, we begin our first ever January Intake for both regular and Open and Distance and e-Learning (ODeL) students. Not even the sky can be our limit.
Our well equipped library, coupled with a post-modern ICT centre constitutes an essential resource. The campus has excellent foods at affordable student rates. Kericho Campus also has unparalleled on-campus and self-contained hostels.
Kericho Campus will continue providing quality education to western Kenya region with its dedicated members of staff. In the spirit of the Holy Writ, though our beginning may be small, we are optimistic of a greater future. This is a place of new beginnings, where all of us are beginners towards great things.
