All is set for the University of Nairobi's open day that will officially be opened today by Health Cabinet Secretary Cleopa Mailu.

UoN Deputy Vice Chancellor Henry Mutoro said 15,000 visitors are expected at the three-day even that will end on Saturday.

"We are urging many Kenyans to turn up and see what we offer. They should come and see the cutting edge innovations and creative work done by our students," said Prof Mutoro.

He added:"Prospective students can also come to select and apply programmes they want to pursue on the spot. It will also be an opportunity for them to interact with renowned scholars."

The University's Director of the Centre for Self-Sponsored Programmes Julius Ogeng'o said the institution choose Standard Media Group as its partner because of its multiple media platforms.

"The open day is a very important event to the institution. We understand that we need to partner with skilled and experienced media houses like Standard Group to reach out to prospective students in the country and beyond," said Prof Ong'engo.

Standard Group Commercial Manager Jacinta Awuor, who represented Chief Executive Officer Sam Shollei at the meeting said apart from using the print, TV, digital and billboards to promote the event, they will also use other publicity and mobilisation means.
