Applications are now being accepted for placement in various universities and TVET institutions around the country.
According to KUCCPS, applicants for the 2020 KCSE are permitted to use the 2021 cut-off points to apply for a position in the intake for 2023/24.
The 2022 cut-off will be made accessible following placement, with the 2021 cut-off serving as a guide for applicants. The placement results will be made public after the course has been changed, they said in a tweet.
The requirement for admission to a university is a C+. All courses are funded by the government, in accordance with the new university and TVET finance model that President William Ruto unveiled on May 3.
By giving them more capitation than their colleagues from wealthy homes, the new model seeks to give students from extremely disadvantaged households an equal opportunity to pursue a college or university education.
In the current academic year, the government will begin implementing a funding model in which students will get capitation based on their level of need.
A total of 173,127 more students will enroll in universities for the 2023–2024 academic year, and 145,325 more will enroll in TVET programs.
Government subsidies and Helb loans are offered to 37 public universities, however only Helb loans are available to 30 private colleges.
For 189 more public colleges that the Ministry of Education has registered as TVETs, government grants and Helb loans are accessible.
Additional 27 public colleges and seven TVET institutions that are registered with various Ministries are not eligible for Helb loans and are not funded by the government.
According to Ruto, funding for higher education has grown by 56% from the current budget to Sh84.6 billion as of the forthcoming intake. He announced the new funding model as he was doing this.
He asserted that it consisted of Sh53 billion that will be included in the budget and Sh31.6 billion for Helb loans.
The maximum capitation per student at universities rose from Sh152,000 to Sh208,000 as a result of the rise, while TVET students will now receive training for Sh67,189 per year rather than Sh71,420.
However, funds will be allocated based on four levels of need: vulnerable, terribly in need, needy, and less in need.
When enrolling at a school, students from low-income households are eligible for government loans up to 40% and scholarships up to 53%.
Those enrolling in TVET programs will receive government loans up to 30% and scholarships up to 50%.
For government-sponsored students and sponsored students at TVETs, parents will only pay 7% and 20%, respectively, of the total cost of education.
