Most time, candidates seeking admission via part time confuse the full time courses for part time courses. They just assume that any course offered in KENPOLY undergraduate full time  programmes is equally offered under KENPOLY part time programmes but this is not always the case

Many UTME students that selected KENPOLY in their UTME now go for part time programmes after failing to gain admission via UTME and the good thing is that the certificate awarded to part time graduates does not state whether it was part time or full time programme so in the eyes of any employer, every certificate is given equal opportunity.

KENPOLY part time courses for this semester have been listed below, however, some courses offered in full time are not available in part time programmes mainly because of the time required to cover the scope of work involved. It is one reason part time programmes in KENPOLY and other schools qualified to run part time programmes both in undergraduate and postgraduate level requires at least an extra year more than the duration for full time ND and HND programmes.
