School Leavers Attachment Scheme in Kilifi Kenya

The School Leavers Attachment Scheme (SLAS) selects talented students from Kilifi, Kenya, who have just completed high school with excellent grades to go on a three-month attachment. Students gain valuable work experience in laboratories, hospital wards, computer departments and community interaction. This experience gives students an advantage over most other university first-years.

Following the release of the KCSE results, using a rigorous selection process, we recruit nine of Kilifi’s top performing students for the School Leavers Attachment Scheme.

If you scored an average mean grade of B+ and above in the 2017 KCSE, and you completed your KCPE in a Kilifi County primary school, you can submit an application.
