The Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) on Saturday, July 22, announced application for Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC) courses on its platform.
This marks the first time medical course applications are being onboarded onto the KUCCPS systems since applying for admission to KMTC used to be handled exclusively by the KMTC.
Interested candidates can apply for the September 2023/2024 intake with the application window set to close on August 4, 2023.
“The application targets individuals who completed the KCSE examination from the year 2013 to 2022,” read the statement from KUCCPS in part.
According to KUCCPS Chief Executive Officer Dr. Agnes Mercy Wahome, providing the KMTC courses on the KUCCPS platform will ensure equity, fairness, and balanced access to the training opportunities.
“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 Dr. Agnes.
Students seeking to join the KMTC can now apply for the desired course by visiting the application portal www.students.kuccps.net and then log in using the student details.
In addition, KUCCPS has a database of the KCSE examination results of all the potential applicants, hence does not require applicants to provide their results.
There are 30 KMTC programmes available for application.
The programmes, which are at diploma and certificate levels, include community health nursing, mental health and psychiatry, midwifery, radiography, and imaging, medical laboratory sciences, occupational therapy, optometry, pharmacy, physiotherapy and public health, among others.
Interested applicants can access the list of all the available programmes in the 83 KMTC campuses countrywide, including the minimum subject requirements in the KUCCPS Student’s Portal, students.kuccps.net.
After the application window has been closed, KUCCPS will proceed to review all received applications and then place selected students to various KMTC branches across the country.
The criteria for KUCCPS placement is primarily based on an applicant’s performance in the KCSE examinations.
Meanwhile, the deadline for the ongoing application for placement to diploma programmes in primary Teacher Training Colleges has been extended to August 4, 2023.
