Varsity’s 6th Open Day kicks off
The University of Nairobi’s 6th Open Day officially kicked off today, April 28, 2016 at the Great Court, Main Campus.
This year’s Open Day has not only attracted the participation of all UoN teaching and non-teaching units but also stakeholders drawn from industry.
Presiding over the opening ceremony, the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Peter Mbithi said that open days give faculty staff the opportunity to interact with prospective students and the public at large, sharing the University’s academic programmes, research outputs and services.
“Through the open day, the University is making a statement about the quality of services we render to the public and this is evident in our readiness to display ourselves for public scrutiny of our products and services,” he said.
The Open Day brings together University of Nairobi staff and students in addition to key players in the education sector which includes the Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (formerly known as JAB), Higher Education Loans Board (HELB). Other partners include Standard Media Group, Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB).
Early this month, the University held regional open days in Mombasa, Kisii, Meru and Eldoret in which prospective students, parents and guardians from the counties had the advantage of interacting with faculty, and receiving information on holistic education provided by the University of Nairobi. Those interested in joining the University have an opportunity to apply for the course of their choice on the spot through the online application for self sponsored students.
The three day fete at the Main Campus will end on April 30, 2016.
