NUC Approves 6 New Programmes For NOUN.
The National Universities Commission (NUC) has given full accreditation to six programmes at the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) to commence academic activities.
The approved programmes are Accounting, Banking and Finance, Business Administration, Marketing, Public Administration and Hotel and Catering Management. The implication of this status is that NOUN now has the mandate to run these programmes for five years.
This was disclosed by the Vice-Chancellor of the university, Professor Abdalla Uba Adamu, in a letter dated 19th March, 2020 and signed by Maryam Sali, the NUC Director of Accreditation, on behalf of the Executive Secretary.
The NUC has the statutory mandate to accredit academic programmes in all Nigerian universities.
Certificates issued to students admitted into unaccredited programmes are not recognised.
The latest approval given to NOUN was sequel to the result of an NUC-organised accreditation visitation to the university in Abuja in October/November 2019.
