The University of Nairobi, a body corporate established under the Universities Act 2012 of the laws of Kenya and the University of Nairobi Charter, is the pioneer institution of University education in Kenya and the region. The only institution of higher learning in Kenya for a long time, the University of Nairobi responded to the national, regional and Africa's high level manpower training needs by developing and evolving strong, diversified academic programmes and specializations… [+] in basic sciences, applied sciences, technology, humanities, social sciences and the arts. Through module II (continuing education) programmes, invaluable opportunity has been opened to hundreds of Kenyans and non-Kenyans, on a paying basis, who meet university admission requirements, but who have not been able to access university education due to restricted intake into the regular programmes that is determined by limited resource allocation by Government. In this effort, the location of the seven campuses of the University in the capital city and its environs and facilitating easy access, has been an asset that has seen the university increasingly become the busy hub and citadel of academic activity at all times. In addition to the regular and evening and weekend programmes, classes are conducted at the University's Extra Mural Centres located at the country's county headquarters. The university is proud of its distinguished record of achievements in teaching, research, development and consultancy while strategizing for a greater future as the centre of academic, research and professional excellence.

Kenya's coastline on the Indian Ocean stretches from the Somalia border in the north, to Tanzania in the south, a distance of 620 kilometers' Kenya lies between Somalia to the East, Ethiopia to the North, Sudan to the northwest, Uganda to the West and Tanzania to the South. The country is cut across by the Great Rift Valley which runs from North to South and whose depth is between 610 and 914 meters below the rest of the landscape. Altitude governs the climate of different parts of Kenya. The land above 1609 meters enjoys a climate with good rainfall. Being on the equator, there are no marked seasonal changes. In most parts of the country there are two rainy seasons - "long" and "short" rains. The economy of Kenya, at present, depends mainly on agriculture (tea, coffee, dairy produce, meat, sisal, pyrethrum) and tourism. There is fairly extensive light industry in Nairobi and to a lesser extent in other large towns. One tourist attraction is the large variety of flora and fauna to be found in the National Parks. Kenya's population is about 38 million with a concentration in the central and western parts of the country. The northern and north eastern parts of the country have sparse population due to the semi desert climatic conditions prevalent there.
