To reward outstanding achievement the University of Plymouth offers scholarship schemes to help towards funding your studies. You could get up to 50% off your tuition fees in your first year.
For undergraduate courses, you'll need good A levels or the Kenyan Certificate of Secondary Education plus an acceptable International Foundation Year or equivalent. Our partner college on campus, University of Plymouth International College (UPIC), offers a wide variety of foundation courses.

We require applicants to have completed the Kenyan Bachelor degree from a recognised institution with the following classification:
|Kenyan degree classification - percentage||Kenyan degree classification - letter grade||Kenyan degree classification - description||Kenyan degree classification||UK degree equivalent|
|70% – 100%||A||Excellent||1st||1st|
