Top 10 Kenya Universities with Highest Number of Student Enrollment

Top 10 Kenya Universities with Highest Number of Student Enrollment. Every year there is a large number of students who enroll in to the Kenyan universities. Every university has a certain student capacity that will limit the number of students it can take. That is why we have taken time to list top 10 Kenya universities with highest number of student enrollment

In year 2019, there were approximately 88,500 students who are to be admitted to various private and public universities. This number is expected to rise even further as years go by hence the need to expand our higher education institutions

The factor that will determine which university a student is likely to join is dependent on their university choice, grade and the degree to be studied.
