Students seeking to join the Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC) can now apply through the Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) portal.
The KUCCPS portal opened on Saturday, with 30 KMTC programmes, at diploma and certificate levels, available for application.
The application, whose deadline is August 4, 2023 targets individuals who completed the KCSE examination from between 2013 and 2022.
“This is a milestone because KMTC and KUCCPS have a common objective of enhancing access to quality higher education and training opportunities in a manner that is equitable to all Kenyans,” said KUCCPS Chief Executive Officer Dr. Agnes Mercy Wahome.
Providing the KMTC courses on the KUCCPS platform, Wahome went on, will ensure equity, fairness and balanced access to the training opportunities.
One perk of using the KUCCPS system is that it already has a database of KCSE examination results for potential applicants. This eliminates the need for applicants to provide their results, ensuring the process is free from cheating.
To access the list of available programs at the 83 KMTC campuses across the country, including the minimum subject requirements, interested applicants can visit the KUCCPS Student Portal.
With the entry of KMTC into the KUCCPS fold, the Placement Service now places students in degree, diploma, certificate, and artisan courses in 289 public training institutions and 30 private universities in Kenya.
