International Programmes and Links are relationships which the University of Nairobi establishes with other universities/ organizations locally and abroad. Such programmes and links are governed by MOUs that stipulate the basis upon which the relationship should be operated. The university recognizes linkages that are collaborative in nature based on mutual understanding, equal partnership and reciprocity. Programmes and linkages provide avenues through which academic members of staff and students can further there research activities and at the same time jointly source for funds with their collaborators in order to promote research activities, institutional capacity building, exchange of publications and journals.
