Multimedia University of Kenya (MMU) and University of Central Lancashire (uclan) has partnered to offer a hybrid undergraduate media course that will enable students at MMU to complete their journalism degree in the United Kingdom (UK), and gain a British degree.


The course will see journalism students undertake their first and second academic years in MMU, and then proceed to uclan to complete their third and fourth academic years before graduating with a British journalism degree.


According to the partnership, graduates of this programme will gain direct qualification to postgraduate studies, and will also be eligible for scholarship funding with the uclan.


The partnership will also see the two institutions collaborate in various areas of teaching, research and knowledge transfer to enhance staff and student development.
