The NUC Director of Academic Standards, Dr Gidado kumo, who made the announcement, said that the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) removed the course from its website for 2015/2016 session admission in compliance with an NUC directive.
According to him, the NUC has numerous unresolved problems with the Medical Laboratory Science and the Medical Laboratory Council.
He described as illegal the directive from the council for the establishment of Medical Laboratory Science faculties.
Kumo said that Medical Laboratory Science should be a department within the faculty of basic medical sciences in the Colleges of Health Sciences.
The director said that NUC remained the statutory agency of government responsible for approval of courses, approval of new faculties and determination of the funding of universities.
He said discussions with the council were ongoing, adding that the programme would be released once all pending issues were sorted out.
