All the people I personally know that studied there said they just went to get the certificate cos they are not taught anything but buy this and that.

That's not true. You have to write your exam and pass them. And the exams aren't cheap.

You'll make a wicked and heartless lecturer, something tells me.

notok:

it has nothing to do with Nigeria factor , stop blaming Nigeria. Something tells me you can't cope with the competition required to get these courses and you've decided to take the easier way out

You got. me wrong.Did I ask him not to pursue the course? And his enquiry is not so much about the course but about the academic qualities of NOUN and the acceptability of their certificates.I told my niece the same truth. She spurned it as you did, and then went to UI for her Computer Science degree.But now after her service she is back in the class. struggling to study Java this Java that.When I applied for a teaching job so many years back at Federal Polytechnic , Ilaro, they didn't even ask for my degree certificate , but formy MSCE, which was the in-thing then. and that was even teaching.Your degree is to build a career, but professional qualifications give
you thee big bucks.Mind you I hold a BSc degree in Computer Sciences from Unilag.
don't use your sister as an example... She probably thought what they were teaching them in school was enough... The aim is to have a bsc in comp. Science.. During her degree period nothing stops her from getting certifications and doing personal projects

They don't really teach in NOUN cos it is an open university, but you have to do over-time reading.
You have to independently study hard to pass

Malami graduated from Usmanu
Danfodiyo University where he studied Law
and was called to the bar in 1992. He is an
alumnus of the University of Maiduguri where he
obtained his master's degree in Public
Administration in 1994.


And some folks are saying negative things about National Open University.


Poster, my advice to you is that National Open University is for intelligent folks. Can you study on your own?

Noun is a scam!
I just pulled out...just like someone said up there, you will pay for almost everything, TMAS aren't easy accessing and submitting!
Exams are clashing like..I can't understand this country o!
I felt disappointed because what I expected isn't what I met
Exams only clash when you have carry overs.
TMAs are easy to submit jare.

Overall it's not a walk in the park sha.

NOUN is a great option. It has its downsides but it is very good if you are a fan of open learning.

I did a comprehensive review of NOUN based on personal experience. Its a long video but it will definitely give you a good idea of what to expect and what factors to consider. Please find below:

You know private school would take you if you have the MONEY for school fees?

NOUN is a Federal University. If you are under 23 years old, you can get the first degree at NOUN and then do masters in a private or government CONVENTIONAL university to be able to take part in NYSC. NOUN graduate do not take part in NYSC.

I would advice you choose a very easy course ("degree na degree").

The danger of the open university that student don't take it seriously at first because you are not going to class daily, you slack and don't study until 3 days to exams. Nigerians also feel it is not a real school (so some private employers would shun you).

If you chose a simple course and study daily, you would love the school...Everything is on you (no one would lecture you). That is why I suggest you study something you already know and just want certification.

The advantage is that they follow their calendrer so you are finishing 4 years from now (although they are talking of joining ASSU which would be a big mistake). It is also a little expensive, be ready to spend 100k+ yearly.

. With due respect to those that school there,NOUN is for those who are working and and are interested in futhering there education.Students pay through their noses theire.It is the brain child of OBJ who used it to bag his his wisshy washy degrees without academic quality.I advise you go to a public university.As for private universities 90 % of them are understaffed and have to rely on public Lecturers for existence ...

You won't take my advice, but anyway I will still advice you just make sure that you hustle hard and save up, travel to foreign country and gain your education, you will thank me later, this country is going no where you know why, because when you finish your education you will regret why you didn't do Yahoo at the end so just make sure that you take my advice, at the end of graduating from Noun you wont get a job I is not bad luck or curse, is just that this country doesnt support young people that want to progress...

I can't speak on NOUN, but I just wanted to leave this comment to say that if you graduate with that degree (Mathematics and Computer Science), and if you do well enough for a first class, you'll be HOT CAKE here in the US. Forget people telling you school is a scam, do your best and also learn programming well enough on the side (because I've heard that CS in Nigeria doesn't teach coding as well as it should). But even only with the theoretical background, you should have no problem making very very good money if you do well enough.

I would even advise you attend noun and use your major time to learn a business. This will make your 3-years worthwhile. You can even go into housing agency business as it will keep you on the field and in constant communication with people.

I studied Public Health there for the passion after my B.Sc Pharmacology. It's harder and more efficient. You will read and know it by force.

Maybe the people only went there because they needed an upgrade at work (they had ND as the cert they were using at work)

For academic aspect, NOUN is good.
You must be ready to help yourself pass as no lecture will be given you the the school (except facilitations for most science course)

The course material is very very ok.(some guys from UNiLorin were collecting them for their study)
If you need someone to be pushing you to study, pls don't go to NOUN
Except 2016 when they changed the VC and transferred to another portal, if your course year is 4, it will not pass 4 years.

I had to tell op the truth without tact.
Why did the op quit ? , because he can't cope with the competition required for those medical related courses. If you offered the OP a chance to study any medically related course without having to scale through the fierce competition I'm probably sure he would take it , he just wants the easy way out.
For how long is the op going to keep quitting ?
What happens when the computer science course gets too hard , will he quit too
what happens when his job gets challenging, will he quit too
Quitting is not going to help him he needs to go for what he wants and work hard for it

Getting your TMAS online, submitting same are all nonsense!
Exams dey clash!!
Someone was to write a course in the afternoon only to get to exam center to be told same has be written in the morning. Scam! Scam!! Scam!!!


Exam will clash mostly when the student has carry over.. because the school will not put you above the normal students who is to write their normal semester exam. (If you have carry as an 100L student in second semester, your carry over exams may clash with your current level exams.

And for time, you can't successful finish NOUN without being in a WhatsApp group/s to get information.
