University of Nairobi

Short Description

 The University of Nairobi, a body corporate established by an Act of Parliament Cap 210 of the Laws of Kenya is the pioneer institution of University education in Kenya and the region. The University has training programmes and research in diversified academic programmes and specializations in basic sciences, applied sciences, technology, humanities, social sciences and the arts. 

The School of Biological Sciences is the proud product of the notable merger of the two of the oldest and well-known departments of this University - Botany and Zoology that occurred in 2006.  The School is therefore carrying the mantle of great experience and excellence in the biological field. Its mandate is twofold: firstly to train personnel in the biological field so as to meet the job market in both the academic and industrial spheres, and secondly, to conduct research in relevant basic and applied biological fields. The School offers undergraduate and postgraduate courses.
Summary Role

The University of Nairobi will offer in the first place thesis possibilities. During the EMBC+ project implementation course work for credit transfer will be investigated through the running MSc program on Marine Biodiversity Conservation and Fisheries Managemen. The modalities for these credit transfers will be worked out to be consistent with these of the EMBC+ programme.
