The University of Nairobi is scrapping more than 40 courses as the Ministry of Education reforms plan starts to bite.

A confidential document seen by the Sunday Standard reveals that some of the courses at the university had not attracted any students for the last five years.

The document – rationalisation of academic programmes – tabled in the University Senate further says some of the courses to be dropped were either duplicated or have since been replaced. The courses list is compiled from recommendations made by about 10 university’s faculties, schools, institutes or centres.

It is understood that the various faculties and schools will now have to defend why any of the courses must be retained in the university programmes list.

The courses cut across certificates, diploma, bachelors, masters and PhD. The most-affected courses are from agriculture, mathematics, population studies and research institute, nursing science, translation and interpretation, biological sciences, African women studies, arts, institute of anthropology, gender and African studies and physical sciences.
