The second round of applications for the Kenya Medical Training College program has been released by the Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service.
According to the public statement made on Tuesday, the registrants received an SMS letting them know the results.
They also gave candidates advice on how to see their results.
SMS was used to alert applicants of this, and they are urged to log in to their portal using the URL http://students.kuccps.net to check the progress of their application.
KUCCPS launched its portal on September 12 for students who did not receive a placement from KMTC.
The placement service advised students that it would change their choices for KMTC courses if they applied through KUCCPS.
Furthermore, the submission process is free, and the revision window is from September 12 to September 16.
The previous application deadline date was August 4. On July 22, the portal was initially made accessible to candidates.
The service portal received applications up until August 4, according to Mercy Wahome, the chief executive of KUCCPS.
During the period, KUCCPS received 42,000 applications, with each applicant paying Sh2,000 for the process that would lead to enrollment at one of the 42 nationwide KMTC campuses.
With a student capacity of 11,000 at KMTC, approximately 32,000 students were denied opportunities.
Wahome stated that thirty Kenya Medical Training (KMTC) programs were accessible for application on the KUCCPS portal.
The placement service was to position students in degree, diploma, certificate, and artisan courses at 289 public training institutions and 30 private universities in Kenya upon the incorporation of KMTC into KUCCPS.
The placement service noted that the application targeted Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education exam passers between 2013 and 2022.
The diploma and certificate programs include, among others, community health nursing, mental health and psychiatry, midwifery, radiography and imaging, medical laboratory sciences, occupational therapy, optometry, pharmacy, physiotherapy, and public health.
