Universities in Kenya are the main centres of higher education in Kenya. They are accredited by the Commission for University Education (CUE).
In the past few years, Kenya has seen a rise in the number of universities. This is because the government has been trying to improve the quality of education in order to meet up with international standards.
Kenya has a number of universities, the oldest being the University of Nairobi (UoN), which was founded in 1948. Other notable universities include Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT), Moi University, Egerton University, Garissa University College and Maseno University.
