This is a one-year program that “stacks” on to the CES-E program; students must first complete CES-E with York University before being considered for admission to DTE-P at Kenyatta University. Their course credits from CES-E will be transferred into the DTE-P program, allowing them to graduate from DTE-P with a two-year diploma after one year of further study following CES-E.

Because of the flexibility offered by the online/distance mode of study some students may find they are able to continue working during their program of study. However, ample time will need to be set aside to complete course work.
