Below is the list of the 10 courses scrapped.
- Communication skills
- Fundamentals of Development and their Applications
- Human Health

John Orindi, director of corporate relations at the University of Nairobi, claims that the units that were deleted are out-of-date and useless in the modern world.
Orindi asserts that in addition to the outdated and pointless courses that have been dropped, the University of Nairobi can teach its students more crucial lessons.
Orindi stated that the graduate “has to be updated with issues of climate and technology.”
“As a result, we are adapting to the times so that what we teach is current and useful to our graduates. Things that benefit the graduates are what we seek.
