Once we receive your application, it will be handled by the relevant admissions staff for your chosen degree programme. The admission team will carefully review the information you have given in your application, your academic record and referees to ensure you meet our entry requirements. Securing entry to Mount Kenya University is competitive, so we are unable to offer a place to everyone who applies. Each application is treated individually and on merit and how long it takes to process will depend on personal circumstances and your chosen degree course. It is therefore important to complete your application with great care (we may withdraw any offer if the information on your application is later found to be inaccurate).

All those applying to join the University must verify their academic transcripts through the Rwanda Notary Authorisation for you to be admitted. Where necessary, you might be requested for equivalence from the Higher Education Council of Rwanda.

If your application is unsuccessful and you are unclear why, you can request feedback. We recommend that you first double check that you meet our entry requirements as it’s the most common reason why applications are turned down. If you are not satisfied with your unsuccessful application, you should put your request in writing to the Registrar, Admissions office for feedback. Please note that for such requests, we normally respond only to the applicants themselves, and not proxies.

Mount Kenya University Rwanda accepts applications from students transferring from other universities within and beyond the region. For such a student to be considered for admission one will be required to fill a transfer and/or exemptions form for consideration to complete the specific degree one is undertaking. The form is provided in the admissions office. Information relating to possible exemptions is also provided in the same office.
