There are several diploma courses offered by higher education institutions in Kenya, in which you can enroll in. However, not all of them are reliable, and you can end up wasting a lot of time and money with some. On the other hand, with the right course, you can gain in-demand skills to land a good job.

Those willing to pursue diploma courses are required to have a minimum grade of C- (minus) except for a diploma in education which requires C+ (plus) mean grade.
