Each course unit is allocated three hours per week which is broken into two sessions of two and  one hour respectively undertaken on separate days of the week. Some course units however are taken ‘out’ of semester and these have a practical element to them.

Duration

In such cases, a student may defer their studies subject to the time limits applicable under the relevant Kenyatta University regulations. Where students face difficulties with paying their fees for any semester, they can take the ‘semester off’ by making a formal application to the registrar (academic) who communicates the approval in writing
