The best public and private universities in Kenya have been revealed and once again the big names dominated the top positions in the latest ranking. 

Which are the most popular Universities in Kenya? UniRank  answered this question by publishing the 2021 Kenyan University Ranking of 62 Kenyan higher-education institutions meeting the selection criteria: being chartered, licensed or accredited by the appropriate Kenyan higher education-related organization offering at least four-year undergraduate degrees (bachelor degrees) or postgraduate degrees (master or doctoral degrees)
delivering courses predominantly in a traditional, face-to-face, non-distance education format.

The aim is to provide a non-academic League Table of the top Kenyan Universities based on valid, unbiased and non-influenceable web metrics provided by independent web intelligence sources rather than data submitted by the Universities themselves.
