Five students from University of Nairobi, Kenya, starting from March 2021 will be participating in a research project organized by the Open  University-UK  (approved by the OU Human Research Ethics Committee - reference number: HREC/3832)  which aims to advance the understanding of how COVID-19 is affecting inclusive higher education in Low-and-Middle Income Countries.

University of Nairobi students will share their experiences of studying during pandemic time and help researchers understand how universities and staff can support students for more equitable and inclusive access to quality higher education.

The students are studying a wide range of programmes at the University of Nairobi e.g. Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Science-Agribusiness Management, Education, Pharmacy and Adult Education and Community Development and will provide valuable insight into student experiences together with students from five other universities in Kenya.

The researchers from Open University of UK are: Prof. Agnes Kukulska-Hulme, Professor of Learning Technology & Communication, Dr Fereshte Goshtasbpour, Lecturer in Educational Technology and Dr. Saraswati Dawadi, Research Associate in Educational Technology.


The findings from this study will be made available in August 2021.
