  1. The link to post the application does not seem to work. How do I go about the submission. Also how come the deadline for other universities(Strathmore) is August and ours is July or has it been extended.

  2. Sorry about that, we just updated it to the correct link. Regarding the submission deadline we don’t know the reason as to why it was on that date but just apply because you never know
