Noun is no child's play and majority of those telling you their certs is not recognised don't know what they are saying...

U v got a choice either go and jamb jam urself or get ur shits together and go to skool

Guy you are saying this out of frustration, if you went to other universities in Nigeria, there is always an update on courses. NUC always introduced new things into syllabus. Do not complain. During my 400l in one of the federal universities in Nigeria, a new course that year was introduced to us and it was made mandatory before we can graduate. funny enough it was 100 level course.
NOUN is the cheapest university ever in Nigeria. Full semester may cost you 50,000 with TEXTBOOK not HAND OUT and no extra fees of departmental, faculty etc. Mind you that 50k will be an expenses for both tution, exam and course registartion.

I did my masters spending less than 200,000 naira both transportation cost. PLS counter by words and give me proofs.


beatzone:
NOUN is reckless in extorting their students... Charges upon charges.

They can just come up with additional courses anytime for you to offer, for which you will have to pay for.

Or refuse to add some certain marks you scored, just to make you stay longer than necessary. They are freaking expensive too. They keep collecting money and extorting students

Thank you bros... you know the strict acts of NOUN.... It is not for those that do not read and research because you will never graduate. you will read and research to pass a course. The school is not cooking beans



uau:
I work in the oil and gas sector here in nigeria and they have recognized my NOUN MBA.

I have been to UNILAG & UNIUYO and didn't fail any course but only in NOUN that i have failed and carried over a course.

Just take this word of advice "do not underrate NOUN".

Happy Sunday my people. Straight to my question, I want to know how relevant is a certificate in National Open University of Nigeria in our society? I am about to enroll for a programme but want to be sure before I do. Can her(NOUN) certificate be compared to other higher institution's? How is it rated?
God bless you all for your candid contributions.
NOUN certificate is recognized any where Ib the world. Their programmes have accreditations and their undergraduates now go for NYSC.
I have colleagues in my place of work who graduated from there.
Currently I'm running an M.Sc programme with them.

Hello dear
please, how many years did you spend doing the M.Ed programme?

what a good question! I started the prog. in 2008 and later suspended it for another master program at UNIBEN which I rounded up in the year 2012 I came back same year and graduated the following year even I met all my mates intact when I came back and graduated ahead of all of them except one. That it to show you can actually study at your own pace . let me also add that , the number of years spent depends on you versatility and dogedeness , you can spend two or more depending on your determination and focus dear. while my mates were regeatring for 7 ,6 or 8 courses at a go during examinations, I registered for 4 or even three which I passed at a go whereas, they may fail some and later rerun them while I was slowly but steadlu progressing. I may soon enroll for my Phd in same institution

Funny thing is ... I graduated from a federal university 13 years ago. So, I do not see where you sensed the frustration from.

Secondly, it is only normal for you to rise in defence of your Alma mata.

On the topic of introduction of new courses, a school can't introduce 5 new courses to final year student, already writing their projects. I challenge you, or anyone to prove me wrong on this. You have finished your final year exams, already started writing your projects, then, the schools comes up with 5 new courses? Who does that ?

As to the expenses, I guess being "expensive" is relative. What is cheapto you, might be difficult for some.

mr op. firstly, the best way to confirm if a school is recognized or not in nigeria is to check with national university commission. so far the school has an approval from the relevant authority in nigeria. it is acceptable and transferable.

the idea of establishing national open university is to fercilitate education to the ballon population of nigeria illiterate so that the country can attain a considerable amount of literate class. the UK has an open university likewise malaysia. the uk open university has won so many award in the past years.

As a student your aim should focus solely on the skills you wanted to get from noun. it is a public university. so it is a national heritage. get the skills and buttress your life.

NOTE. EVEN IF YOU ARE A GRADUATE OF OXFORD UNIVERSITY, IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE SKILLS YOU ARE EMPTY.

I think the original idea of setting up NOUN is for those that are already working, because they can't cope with Full time program.

My take, the certificate is 100% valid and acceptable. Know body will care about the school u attend as long as u are experienced and know ur job.

Where are you from, Nigeria or where? The kind of school you attend matters a great deal, even in obodoyibo. Please wake up from your dreams; it is day break already.

lol. I am wide awake. Please read the law that set up NOUN, many workers that attend NOUN have been promoted in thier workplace.

While the school u attend may be useful, what u have to to offer is more important. You ever wonder y after all d schooling one still go for certification courses?

NOUN may be good for those who are already employed to get promotion, but not for those who haven't gotten employment. In today's Nigeria, an employer will always prefer someone with NYSC certificate

Has it ever occur to you that NYSC has about three certificate they give out to corpers.? Discharge, Exemption and Exclusion. Part time courses of even our very own ivy league schools and Open university falls under Exclusion certs.

FG?? The one that owns the NOUN or what? Or NUC that accredits the NOUN programmes except law or is it NYSC that hand over their EXCLUSION cert?
What are you saying cos honestly I am not understanding.

Start by googling the feds uni. we have in Nigeria then search for NOUN accreditation status at NUC database, then search for NOUN at NYSC database. Thank me latter. ByEeee
