University Commission suspends part-time programmes

The National Universities Commission (NUC) on Monday announced the suspension of all part-time programmes run by universities in the country.

The Executive Secretary of the commission, Julius Okojie, also announced the results of accreditation of courses run by the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN).

Prof Okojie said the commission wanted to streamline part-time programmes such that it would accommodate not more than 20 per cent of the students in universities and stop the establishment of satellite campuses.

The commission announced that 30 NOUN programmes have been granted accreditation.

Prof Okojie said four programmes- Cooperative Management, Entrepreneurship and Business Management, Agric Extension and Management and Hotel & Catering Management were granted full accreditation, 29 programmes were granted interim accreditation while Nursing Science was denied accreditation for failing to meet requirements.

PStylish: Good.Very good.
Its high the wheat was separated from the chaff.
Those part time students do close to nothing.And to think they have started finding their way by hook or crook into the prestigious NYSC scheme make this pronouncement very timely and welcome.

A serious intending graduate must sit his as.s in school through the 4,5,6 or 7 years it demands.

NO MORE! NO LESS!!
I guess you would assume that you are 'wheat', but your parochial disposition suggests you are 'chaff'. You are no better than most of these stereotyped part-timers.

Already people are jumping on the bandwagon to say good "good job, well done", how does this or how do they intent to tackle the massive dearth of required skills for economic viability?

Prof Okojie said the commission wanted to streamline part-time programmes such that it would accommodate not more than 20 per cent of the students in universities and stop the establishment of satellite campuses.

So, what's the alternative? what is wrong with having more than 20% as part-timers? why stop satellite campuses? what are the impacts on quality of education? Have they proposed better ways to deliver quality university/college education in a flexible manner to the teeming population of nigerians who need these skills to gain competitive-advantages? Once again, it seems we apply the same "smash & destroy" nigerian mentality, kick against any form of innovation, if it has any faults, ban it & disregard it's advantages & merits. Of course there are faults with any method to deliver education, but we should be looking for ways to improve & properly regulate them, rather than banning.

I hope so too. It should not affect postgraduate school otherwise it will be a big blow to a lot of us.

Absolute rubbish. Is part time programme the problem of Nigeria education? FG and NUC are the problems of Nigeria education. As long as part time programme is not a problem in developed countries,it is never a problem to Nigeria education.
From Gej to the ministers,senators,they are all products of full time studies and they have not been able to live up expectation of Nigerians. They are disgrace to Nigeria education.
