NUC Lists Universities Approved For Postgraduate Programmes by oshozondii: 1:14pm On Jun 04, 2020
Not all Nigerian universities approved for post-graduate programmes, NUC warns, listing those approved

The National Universities Commission (NUC) has updated the list of approved post-graduate awarding institutions in Nigeria.

The commission said it observed that some Nigerian universities are running unapproved post-graduate programmes, leading to the award of Masters and PhD degrees.

“The commission has also observed some parastatals and institutes awarding these same post-graduate degrees, either on their own or through unapproved affiliation with Nigerian and foreign universities,” it said.

According to the commission, such practices are not only unethical, “but also antithetical to time -tested quality assurance best practices”.

“The commission hereby notifies the general public that only the following universities have the approval to offer post-graduate programmes at the Masters’ and PhD levels in Nigeria.”

A bulletin from the office of the Executive Secretary dated March 23 contains the list of federal, state and private universities currently allowed to issue such certificates to students in Nigeria.

The bulletin was released a few days after the government ordered the closure of all schools in Nigeria due to the coronavirus outbreak.

As of 2018, Nigeria had 162 universities: 41 are federal, 47 are state-owned while 74 are privately owned institutions.

Out of the 41 federal universities across the country, 26 are approved by the commission for post-graduate programmes, 25 state universities were approved for post-graduate programmes out of the 47 state-owned universities in the country while 18 universities out of 74 private universities were approved for post-graduate studies.

But in the March 2020 bulletin which was obtained by PREMIUM TIMES on Tuesday, more universities have been granted approval by the commission for post-graduate programmes.

“Employers of labour, educational institutions and other stakeholders are to note that only certificates issued by these universities for their approved programmes are valid for employment, further studies and other purposes,” the commission said.

Speaking with PREMIUM TIMES, the NUC Director of Information and Public Relations, Ibrahim Yakasai, said all the ‘legal’ universities in Nigeria can actually do post-graduate courses “only after meeting certain criteria and conditions of the commission”.

According to him, the commission must verify that the institutions have adequate resources which include “physical and human resources.”

“All universities can ‘graduate’ to post-graduate but the universities with approval are those that are matured, (who) applied and have met the requirements and they’ve been allowed to do post-graduate. So, we published the names of the universities who have met the conditions,” he said.

BMAS still compulsory
Before a particular programme or school can be approved or accredited according to the NUC, the university must have fulfilled all the requirement in the Benchmark Minimum Academic Standard (BMAS).

BMAS is a document that contains all the minimum requirements before a particular programme or school can be approved or accredited by NUC.

The primary objectives of the commission are to ensure the orderly development of university education in Nigeria, to maintain high standards and ensure adequate funding for them.

undecided

I will rather go and use my money to invest on poultry or something lucrative instead of going for a postgraduate studies in Nigeria again.

With our wicked lecturers who are still teaching in an archaic way and with an outdated syllabus.

It is only in Nigeria a lecturer would be telling you that you can be better than me, because I was never given the opportunity to outshine my lecturers while I was in school.

After postgraduate, what next still be job hunting.


I have alot of my mate we finished together long time ago who are still at home after their postgraduate studies, though it is good at least it would give you edge over your peer when you finally land that federal job.

I always tell people, do it when you have a future in lecturing

University of Port Harcourt... damn!
Always on time. Even though, most Nigerian universities, if not all, are substandard, I believe they’re manageable. But with the way this government slashed the Educational Budget by half, the future of the academic sector in Nigeria looks tenebrific. Take away EDUCATION from a nation, you’d have nothing but a total WASTELAND.

Only pan African university which owns Lagos business school has a sound MBA program that has international accreditation. All the other schools on this list don't have world renowned and accredited MBA programs. I can't speak for the other post graduate programs from the other universities but you see MBA in Nigeria, if you can afford it , just to to Lagos business school or wait till you have enough money and go to other top business schools in Africa or other parts of the world .

Until a Nigerian university makes it to the top 30 best university in African list, we are still joking.

What we have is quantity and not quality education.
