KIUST will not grant any Certificate, Diploma, Degree and/or exemptions based on life experience. To complete a KIUST Certificate, Diploma and/or Degree, students must successfully pass all assignments, projects and examinations. KIUST will however, recognize and accept the academic credentials issued by another registered university/college of higher education. Students who wish to obtain exemptions for previous similar learning must submit a copy of the syllabus and the academic transcripts of the similar courses they have done to KIUST’s Registrar for assessment. KIUST’s Registrar and the professor of the course that the student wants exemption from will conduct the assessment and make the final decision. The final decision will be communicated to the applicant prior to enrolment. However, irrespective of the number of exemptions/credit transfer you may receive from us, you will still be required to study and pass a substantial number of KIUST courses/units before you can graduate.
