Universities are free to continue working with middle level colleges. This is according to a ruling made by Justice Weldon Korir of the High Court.
In a ruling made on Thursday, Justice Korir ruled that the directive barring Universities in the country from working with institutions offering Diploma and Certificate courses as stated in the Universities provision of 2014 was based on a null provision.
The Commission of University Education had directed Universities to stop admitting Diploma Students from last July, further directing them to stop collaborations with middle level colleges.
The Varsity regulator argued that Universities should concentrate on degrees and post-graduate training.
Highlands state college, a middle level college based in Nairobi moved to court challenging the rule 86(2) of the Universities regulation and while agreeing with the case Justice Korir ruled the it was unlawful and untimely.
