kuccps portal open for 2023 intake – In less than a week, students taking the KCSE exams in 2022 will be able to apply for courses through the Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) portal, according to CEO Mercy Wahome. She provided this update on Wednesday, May 3.

Wahome mentioned during a press conference at the State House that the launch of the portal was linked to universities and TVET institutions revealing the expenses of their educational courses.

President William Ruto instructed KUCCPS during the occasion to release student placement information to support their decision-making process when choosing universities.

We’re just waiting on the universities to provide us with their costs, which should be ready within a week. As soon as we have that information, we will be prepared to commence, Wahome announced in response to President William Ruto’s request for clarification.

President Ruto clarified that the delay in opening the KUCCPS portal was initiated to enable further government deliberations on the latest funding model.

The people who played a part in developing the new model, including Vice Chancellors and David Ndii, the chairperson of the Presidential Council of Economic Advisers, were praised by the Head of State.

For a considerable length of time, we have put off accepting this challenge, causing extensive damage to our universities and vocational schools. Consequently, a significant number of the vice chancellors in charge of managing these institutions have become prematurely grey-haired due to the trying circumstances they’ve had to endure.

Ruto expressed satisfaction with the progress made on the model, attributing it to the significant contributions of the VCs. Our task was made easier as they provided us with excellent insights that we pieced together to establish the funding model.

In accordance with the new model, the President assured that the allocation of students to universities and TVETS would not depend on funding.

In order to draw more students, Universities and TVETS must boost the quality of education through an increase in resources, as mandated by the revised funding model.

The head of state disclosed four financial resources to guarantee the continuous operation of colleges and vocational schools. These include financial aid directly benefiting students, funding for exploration, grants for structural developments, and income from services such as offering expert advice.

Ruto pointed out that while they had already created a complex system for funding centered around students, they will now shift their focus to the remaining three funding methods.
