Part-time programmes in Nigerian Universities suspended

The National Universities Commission has announced the suspension of all part-time programmes run by universities in Nigeria.

That's not good, or is it? Continue reading...



The Executive Secretary of the commission, Prof. Julius Okojie Okojie said the suspension of the part- time programmes was to enable the regulatory body “streamline” them.
He said the work of the universities’ regulatory body was becoming more difficult because of the “products of the system” and urged the institutions to cooperate with the NUC to evolve a more focused and credible system.
“For now all part time programmes have been suspended. We are going to streamline them.
“No university should have more than 20 per cent of their student population on part-time with excess capacity to teach. All part time programmes must be located on campus. We do not want satellite campuses anymore,” he said.
The executive secretary said henceforth universities must score over 70 per cent in all areas of assessment, including the provision of library facilities before it would be accredited.
“But if your library facilities are poor or sub standard, even if you score over 70 per cent, you will not be considered fit enough for accreditation,” he stated.
Okojie said that out of the 31 programmes evaluated for the NOUN, 30 were accredited.
He said that four programmes of the university were granted full accreditation, 26 others accredited on interim basis while one programme was denied accreditation.

Very bad. What do they want workers who school part-time to do? Or Full time mums who school in the evenings?

I totally understand where they're coming from. It takes the average nigerian undergrad about 5yrs to graduate (strike and all). Which means part-time students take about 8-10yrs to graduate. It makes no sense!

Instead of them to face the serious probs we are facing they are causing more probs for the masses.

I don't really know reason why this decision is taken but we should frank the way and manner the programme is being run in some school is exploiting,frustrating and time consuming as there is no uniformity in running the programme nationwide so NUC should put proper mechanism in place to curb and correct these deficiencies and lift the suspension to better's pple's life.

Anonymous said...

This is total nonsense...... Esp if post graduate programme is inclusive. Come on, this govt has got 2 b kidding. How can u jst wake up nd make such a decision, wut do u want d part-time students 2 do?

@maximus I dnt support dis ya analysis cha cha

michelle said...

NUC are completely living in the dark ages...
in this 21st century where access to education takes all forms from part time to distance learning, to online learning....
why must nigerians be backward in their thinking?
the NUC should dissolve its management if these are the kind of unreasoned decisions they keep coming up with...
Nonsense!

Anyway, back to the gist...they shouldn't have scrapped it! What happens to current students?

Duke Emeka said...

I totally agree, see what he said due to the Products(graduates), Part Time shld be suspended and then properly modified all those satellite campuses are all not effective. I agree with NUC on this one.

MAKWE GODWIN said...

not so suprise about the news. Abuja university is the worst, my colleagues in the office have spent 10yrs now without certificates. We need strong institution to regulate universities. Equilibrate HND with BSC and the issue of Certification will be a by gone hence competence. Kudos to NUC

This not a good news at all, what happened to those who want to upgrade themselves while still on job.

please their should be a rethink.

Part suspension does not mean terminate.The programme itself is faulty.If only the NUC will be sincere without money politic,they will come up with something good 4 us.As we all have lost hope on the people we called leaders,Only God knows there intentions.Or Do the man those in-charge needs money?are the university chopping alone?these are the factors to address.But for me,the action is good only if the can harmonize well without selfish interest.Lets wait and see as we are looking at Goodluck and his rule.

Alake said...

@ innoxx, where did you get information about NUC getting a share of students fees? you are sooooo ignorant.
NUC is only tring to regularize these part time sattellite campuses as they are producing 'quater baked graduates' bcos they are bn taught by low cadre staff with little or no experience.

Anonymous said...

I don't think it will affect you that much. The universities will simply absolve all current part time students from 200levels to final year into the full time programme. It just means the universities will not be admitting part time students this year.

NUC should ve made this clear in that statement. Its not possible to stop the universities from graduating thousands of part time students all over the country.

PH's Tytest.

NU NONSENSE.God will fight for the affected students. i'm concered about NOUN. nuc have a rethink or else...

Don't worry ur money may not have entered voicemail, I reckon †̥ђε̲̣̣̣̥ suspension shouldn't be for too long, †̥ђε̲̣̣̣̥ PT issue needs to be addressed,†̥ђε̲̣̣̣̥ population of people that are admitted is outrageous,†̥ђε̲̣̣̣̥ schools do not care if education is impacted as long as they get their money, that's not fair on †̥ђε̲̣̣̣̥ students,I just hope †̥ђε̲̣̣̣̥ naija factor does not come to play as usual so things can be done fast.-Palo
