A new report by CPS Research International led by Prof. Herman Manyora says that some 14 universities have not attracted even a single international student. This could mean that the programs run by the listed universities, are not attractive to the learners in international community.
The report says that most of the international students in Kenyan universities come from East and Central Africa. Martha Karua replying to a post by The Standard Media on this report, she believes Kenyan universities are primarily to serve Kenyans. Provided they offer quality education it's ok by her.
The listed universities include, University of Embu, Chuka University, Rongo University, Meru university of science and technology, Bomet University, University of Kabianga, Alupe University College, Africa International University, Kiriri Women's University of Science and Technology, Lukenya university, Gretsa University, Kenya Highlands Evangelical University and Scott Christian University.
Comission for University Education encourages universities to embrace international ranking. Internationally, universities are ranked based on teaching, research, citations, intetnational outlook and industry income.
Mixed reactions emerged from this and below are some reactions from Kenyans.
