Highlands State College is a private college in the heart of Nairobi’s CBD. As a teaching center for Maasai Mara University, we offer approved courses in Business, Education, Computer Science/IT, Social Sciences and Public Administration, from certificate to postgraduate degree level.
We also teach Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) diplomas & certificates in the same fields. We cater for busy professionals who want to further their careers while continuing to work. As well as our central location, our flexible timetables (evening and weekend modes) allow students to attend classes with minimal disruption of their 9 to 5 jobs. We also have a vibrant school-based programme for teachers wanting to upgrade their qualifications during the school holidays, as well as regular mode (Monday–Friday, day). Led by our Chairman Prof. Kihumbu Thairu, who has a highly distinguished career in university education and administration, our Management Board has a combined experience of almost 100 years in Higher Education. We are privileged to have a well-qualified, highly-committed faculty and administrative staff. These elements, combined with excellent facilities and an ideal location, have grown our student numbers to 450 in 4 years. We look forward to continued growth as we strive to increase provision of high quality education for Kenya’s workforce.
