So far, the Admissions Section has made major milestones. During the admission of the first year students 2018/2019 Academic Year, the Admissions Section successfully implemented the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) System. This fast-tracked the registration process and made it more efficient. It made it possible to reduce the average time taken to register a new student from four hours to twenty-five minutes. Also, we admitted international students through the student-exchange programme from the University of Dresden, Germany into various programmes. This has enhanced globalization of education.
During the September intake 2019/2020 Academic Year the University of Embu admitted its first group of Bachelor of Laws (LLB) students. This achievement has in deed made the institution more competitive. Bachelor of Laws (LLB) became a very welcome addition to the rest of the one hundred and twenty-seven (127) programmes currently offered at the University of Embu.
