KUCCPS States Opening Date for Online Course Application 2023
KUCCPS States Opening Date for Online Course Application 2023. Mercy Wahome, CEO of Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS), announced today that the portal will be online in a week so that 2022 KCSE candidates can apply for courses.
Speaking at the state house during the press briefing, Wahome pointed out that the portal launching was dependent on universities, colleges, and Technical and Vocational Education Training (TVETs) releasing their information regarding the cost of their academic programs.
Dr. William Ruto, the president, gave the KUCCPS CEO permission to publish information about the site’s opening so that 2022 KCSE candidates would have the opportunity to apply to their top-choice colleges.
Wahome responded when the president asked for an explanation, “Once the universities have given us their costs, which I hope they will do in a week, we will be ready to open.”
The delay in portal opening, according to the president, was implemented to give the administration time to consider a new funding scheme for academic institutions.
The president recognized several individuals for their contributions to the creation of the funding model, including the vice chancellors of the institutions and David Ndii, a member of the Presidential Council of Economic Advisors.
Due to our prolonged procrastination of this work, our universities and TVETs have significantly suffered, and many of the vice chancellors now have grey hair—not from advancing age, but rather from attempting to control the conditions in their institutions.
“We decided that the model needed to be developed, so we did. I’m pleased to say that these VCs made important improvements to the model. Our task was extremely simple since they brought the wonderful concepts we had put together and established this finance approach, said Ruto.
The president also said that admission to colleges and TVETs would not depend on funds but instead would follow the new finance model.
The new funding model requires universities and TVETs to raise resources in order to improve education quality and draw in more students.
The four funding mechanisms that will assure the sustainability of universities and TVETs were to be highlighted by the president. These models consist of;
- Financing geared toward students
- Research grants
- Grants for capital infrastructure
- Services provided for a fee, such as consulting.
We will now focus on the other three funding choices after creating a complex structure for student-centered funding, Ruto said.
