Why study at Kings College

Kings College is a unique institution that from its inception has charted a distinct pathway to academic excellence.

Kings College was established to address skill development needs for unemployed youth in Kenya.

Youth unemployment is a significant problem in Kenya. An estimated 60% of the Kenyan population is under the age of 35. The unemployment rate is approximately 40%. An estimated 64% of the unemployed Kenyans are youth .

Kings College addresses the challenge of youth unemployment by helping them develop professional skills that will help the youth penetrate the job market or get into gainful self-employment.

Business literacy helps young people to envision ways of getting out of poverty; do something to help themselves and their communities; and eventually, ensure sustainable economic self-reliance. 

Since it opened its doors in January 2012, Kings College has trained over 100 youth in information technology, accounting, business studies, and foreign languages.
