The Education System in Kenya

The Government of Kenya established in 1985 a Commission for Higher Education that assists the government to coordinate higher education in Kenya. The Commission, besides the coordination of admissions and financing of public universities; and the accreditation of private universities, deals with the accreditation of certificates, diplomas and degrees. Kenyatta University hosts the Institute of Distance Education of the Africa Virtual University (AVU),;.
