Kabarak University is among top private institutions of higher learning that received a large number of government sponsored students for this year's intake.
The Nakuru-based university received 2,327 out of a declared capacity of 2,370 in all of its faculties.
Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha, while releasing the Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) report on Tuesday in Nairobi, commended the partnership government has with private universities.
“The government is funding Kenyan students, whether in public or private universities. We are collaborating with private institutions so that they take some of the students we sponsor. I am happy that some of them offer competitive courses which students complete on time,” Prof Magoha said.
