Top 10 Universities in Kenya

Introduction

What are the most popular top 10 Universities in Kenya? Top10.co.ke tries to answer this question by publishing the 2021 Kenyan University Ranking of 62 Kenyan higher-education institutions meeting the following  selection criteria:

  • Being chartered, licensed or accredited by the appropriate Kenyan higher education-related organization
  • Offering at least four-year undergraduate degrees (bachelor degrees) or postgraduate degrees (master or doctoral degrees)
  • Delivering courses predominantly in a traditional, face-to-face, non-distance education format

Our aim is to provide a non-academic League Table of the top Kenyan Universities based on valid, unbiased and non-influenceable web metrics provided by independent web intelligence sources rather than data submitted by the Universities themselves.
