Diploma in pharmacy fees in Kenya (Fee structure for Diploma in Pharmacy in Kenya)  – Final word

Needless to say, the cost of accommodation can be a huge burden too and this is sometimes not included in the diploma in pharmacy fee structure so ask your college/institution if it has been included.

Do not forget  that you can look and apply for bursaries and scholarships (options include your local NG-CDF and county government bursaries)..

Also do not forget HELB (helb is given even to students studying in private universities like MKU and KEMU) .

That said, your chosen college / university can come in handy when it comes to where and how to apply for bursaries or scholarships –we already saw that some county govts offer bursaries and some actually partner with specific institutions to identify deserving cases.
