UoN Tuition Fees: The University of Nairobi has raised its tuition fees by as high as 118 per cent. This increase in tuition fees comes as the institution battles to raise cash.
Following the UoN tuition fees hike, the cost programs such as liberal arts Master’s courses like communication and MBA has increased to more than Sh. 600,000 for a two-year programme from an average Sh. 275,000. This is equivalent to an increase of 118 percent. The two-year MBA course will now cost Sh. 602,000 from Sh. 280,000, excluding project fees while MA in Communication fees has increased to Sh. 655,000, up from Sh. 273, 000.
At the same time, degree courses like commerce, economics and law under the parallel program will now cost around Sh. 1 million for the four year course duration. This increase represents an increase of about 70 per cent.
Students pursuing medicine at UoN will part with Sh. 3.8 million for the five-year course, up from Sh. 2.35 million. Law is charging Sh. 1, 020, 000 from Sh. 715, 500 while engineering courses will average Sh. 2.1 million from about Sh. 1 million.
The University of Nairobi says that the new fees will take effect on new students joining the institution from this month. “The fees are up and they will apply to new students. It’s part of the restructuring plan that will lift the university from losses,” an official at the university was quoted by a local daily.
