Joy for students as scheme makes transfer within EAC varsities possible

Nairobi. East African students will be able to transfer to any university in the region following the approval of a framework to guide the process. “The heads of state declared the EAC a common higher education area in order to harmonise and enhance quality,” a communique from the Inter-University Council for East Africa, Dar es Salaam, said. Kenya National Qualifications Framework chairman Bonventure Kere welcomed the development, saying it would ensure those with fake certificates were prosecuted.

“Graduates from our system can go and work anywhere in the region,” Prof Kere, who is leading the development of a local blueprint, said. (NMG)
