Distance Learning


The distance learning courses were introduced to provide for students who are unable to attend lectures at KIPM owing to business, domestic or distance considerations. The objective is to provide an opportunity to those who by virtue of the work they do, cannot afford to attend full time, evening or Saturday classes in Nairobi. This is a curriculum delivery methodology to students who have opted for guided self-study to achieve their academic goals without traditional class attendance. 

Detailed study materials are dispatched to the students who are expected to read them and carry out Continuous Assessment Activities given.  Students are allowed to arrange for consultative meetings with their lecturers where they receive further guidance. Exams are done at the end of each semester. This ensures that students finish the course exactly at the same time as the full-time students.

Regular workshops and seminars are organized by the institution to give all distant learners an opportunity to interact, pose their concerns and problems. Solutions are provided on the spot. Further guidance can also be given by postal mail, phone, e-mail or fax.
This has become the program of choice for:

•    Studying professionals who wish for flexibility in managing their time.
•    Students working or staying in areas where lacking suitable learning institutions
•    Companies training their staff without wishing to disrupt operations.
•    Private and organisations staff working in remote areas.
•    Students enrolled in other programs of study e.g. university students (MBAs).
•    School leavers waiting to join university or deciding on what careers to take.
•    Students outside Nairobi who cannot find suitable accommodation and high costs


Freedom from stress: Students will learn without worrying about timetables, traveling and having to organize their life around set timetables.
Flexibility: Participating students, who are forced to relocate, will need not to cut short their studies, just inform KIPM to provide you with tuition on distance learning.
