Breakdown of KCPE 2022 Grades

Reviewed Fees of Various Degree Courses 

Medical courses are the most expensive programmes offered by universities in the country, a new document reveals. According to the document tabled in Parliament by Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu yesterday, Dentistry Clinical and Medicine Clinical degree courses top the list of the most expensive undergraduate programmes being offered by universities. Each costs up to Sh720,000 per academic year.

Veterinary Medicine Clinical undergraduate degree programmes comes third at Sh564,000 per year followed by Pharmacy Clinical course which charges Sh504,000 per year.

The cheapest undergraduate degree programmes, according to the document, include Basic Humanities and Social Sciences, Economics, Geography (BA), History, Philosophy, Religion, Sociology, Literature, Political Science and Linguistics which go for a modest Sh144,000 each.

Other relatively cheap undergraduate degree programmes include Applied Humanities, Public Administration, Psychology, Music, Peace and Security Studies, Disaster Management, Anthropology, Languages, BA with Education, Language and Communication, International Relations and Diplomacy, Social Work and Development Studies with each costing Sh180,000 per year.

Machogu said the current funding structure for public universities is focused on the university to the extent that it is the institution that gets funded and not the student. He said the government had changed the model of funding universities since bulk funding used to work previously because universities were few, but with the increase in the number of institutions, this was no longer viable. He said all students will be supported adequately to meet the cost.

Training to be a doctor will cost upto Sh720,000 while social sciences are the cheapest programme they choose to pursue. Currently, the government uses the 2017 Differentiated Unit Cost funding model where each learner is financed on the basis of the course they pursue.

The cost is less than the amount used to pay lecturers and the facilities. Said Machogu: “Previously, universities were funded in ways that are completely not related to the unit costs, hence some universities were funded at much higher levels while others were funded at considerably lower levels.” Veterinary The document tabled before the Public Investments Committee on governance and education chaired by Bumula MP Wamboka Wanami shows that in both diploma and master’s degree, Medicine and Dentistry courses are the most expensive.
