A propos de la publication

Kenya has seen a dramatic increase in student enrolment over the past decade in higher education institutions (HEIs), in particular through the expansion of private education. In order to regulate the quality of the sector, the government established a new legal framework, and various regulatory bodies were established for quality control. As a private university in Nairobi, Kenya, Daystar University (DU) has made considerable efforts to develop an internal quality assurance (IQA) system, in response to the traditional demand for quality, new requirements related to external quality assurance, and the need to take into account the employability of its graduates. Conducted within the framework of an international research project implemented by the UNESCO International Institute for Educational Planning (IIEP), this case study focuses on how the university's IQA system has been shaped by a triple heritage and how this contributes to quality and employability.
