UWS & Kenya

We are delighted to welcome a growing number of students from Kenya to study with us in our Scottish and London Campuses. Currently our Kenyan students study across a number of Business programmes, including MBA.

With an extensive catalogue of undergraduate, postgraduate and research programmes designed to meet the demands of research and industry, the University continues to offer a wide range of opportunities to Kenyan applicants.

We recently launched our Centre for African Research on Enterprise and Economic Development (CAREED), with one of our academics, Professor John Struthers, as the Director. CAREED has a unique emphasis on enterprise and economic development, especially given Africa’s strong recent and on-going development.
