NUC SUSPENDS PART TIME PROGRAMMES IN UNIVERSITIES

The Nigerian University Commission has announced a ban on part time programmes run by Nigerian Universities and other tertiary institutions in the country. The Executive Secretary of the Commission Prof. Julius Okojie disclosed this to newsmen yesterday while briefing them on the accreditation of the National Open University of Nigeria, NOUN. He said the action was to streamline the programme and to ascertain the quality of the students. He also made it known that most of the Universities are running illegal part time programmes. He said when the ban is lifted, part time students will make up on 20 percent of the student population. Prof Okojie also announced the acreditation of 30 out of 31 courses of NOUN. MEDICINE was the only course that was denied accreditation. MY OPINION: this is a good step in the right direction. It could be more advantageous to the part time students except for those who are admitted with fake documents. Working class persons and those who are not able to gain admission to other Universities need to take advantage of NOUN. Most importantly i recommend the Open University to parents who would want to protect their children from the corrupting influences of University campuses.

  1. What will happen to those already admitted(especially FINAL YEAR STUDENTS)?

  2. The ban takes effect from the 2012/2013 admissions. So those already admitted are secured. No shaking.
