If You Study These Courses In Any Of These Universities,You Are On Your Own-NUC


IM

The National Universities Commission
(NUC) has released a list of some courses that
have not
been accredited.
The unaccredited courses pose
serious danger
to students who study them as the certificates
issued by these universities for the
courses
will not be officially recognised.
Premium Times reports that 2016
accreditation status report indicated that these
unaccredited
courses were taught in 37 out of 143
universities in the country..
..
The Quality Assurance Department of the NUC
is in charge of accrediting courses in
the
universities.
The NUC insists that for a course to be
accredited, it must meet the Benchmark
Minimum Academic Standards (BMAS)
that
has been stipulated by the
commission.
Some of the requirements include: “qualified
faculty members, good learning
environment
and adequate teaching materials –
equipment, books and journals”..
According to the NUC, accreditation is necessary to ensure “employers and
other
members of the community that
Nigerian
graduates of all academic programmes
have attained an acceptable level of
competency in
their areas of specialization.”
It also says it is also important to
certify
courses to assure “the international community that the programmes
offered in
Nigerian Universities are of high
standards
and that graduates of the institutions
are adequate for employment and further
studies.”
According to the commission, the pre-
accreditation process include
“drawing up a
list of academic programmes to be certified,
compilation of list of panel chairmen/
members, time-tabling, budgeting and
organizing the accreditation
coordination
meeting for panel chairmen and members in a
simulation workshop.”
.
...
The post-accreditation activities
include “analyzing accreditation reports
(technical
and administrative), ranking of
programmes
and universities based on their
accreditation status, publishing of accreditation
status of
programmes, issuance of certificates to
programmes that earned Full and
Interim
accreditation results.” According to Premium Times, 13
federal
universities, 16 state universities and
eight
private universities were running
courses that had not been accredited..
Some of the high profile institutions
include
University of Nigeria, Nsukka;
University of
Benin, University of Jos, University of Calabar.
The biggest casualty seems to be the
University
of Abuja which has 15 of its courses,
including Law, unaccredited.
