Testimonials

I celebrate Kenyatta University for creating great innovative minds in science based fields. I have a great experience in my studies at the school of pure and applied science....I appreciate the services offered.

A world of pleasure and enjoyable academia. Three things you can never recover in life: the WORD after it has been said, the MOMENT after its missed and the TIME after its gone. For me I have found all three by choosing Kenyatta University-School of Pure and applied Sciences.
