For those planning to take up German in the Universities in Kenya, I found this article from Georg Verweyen, a former Lecturer at the Kenyatta University and a representative of DAAD in Kenya. Hope it helps you make the correct choice.
Many first year’s students just know of our BEd programme – probably because their German teacher studied at KU. But there are other options:
  • German courses at the Goethe Institut Nairobi
  • BA in German Studies at University of Nairobi
  • BEd in German at KU
  • BA in German at KU
… so what’s the difference?

The Goethe Institut is the right choice if …
  • you want to learn the language,
  • you need an international certificate German on any level.
University of Nairobi’s German Studies BA is your choice if …

Kenyatta University’s German BA is your choice if …
