As a JAMB UTME and University candidate, it is very important that when choosing a course to study in the university, you avoid courses that are non-accredited by the National Universities Commission. The NUC in its annual accreditation report released the List of Nigerian Universities with Unaccredited Courses.

The National Universities Commission (NUC) of Nigeria is a government commission promoting quality higher education in Nigeria. It is located in the capital city of Abuja. The Commission was established in 1962 as an advisory agency in the Cabinet Office. In 1974, it became a statutory body in Nigeria under the Federal Ministry of Education.

Furthermore, there are about 160 Courses in both private and public universities and institutions that have not been approved and accredited by the NUC. The disadvantage of studying these courses is that your degree and certificate will not be recognised in Nigeria if these courses have not been approved by the National Universities Commission.

This is How Courses Get Accreditation

The body in charge of accreditation of courses in institutions is the Quality Assurance Department. The  Quality Assurance Department of the NUC says it must meet the Benchmark Minimum Academic Standards (BMAS) that has been drawn up by the commission.

To get accredited, you need the following:

  • a course must have qualified faculty members
  • a good learning environment
  • adequate teaching materials – equipment, books, and journals

The NUC further disclosed that accreditation of courses is necessary to make sure that “employers and other members of the community that Nigerian graduates of all academic programmes have attained an acceptable level of competency in their areas of specialization.”

In some cases, a course can be given interim accreditation, which means they are due for reassessment after two years. Back to back interim accreditation automatically leads to non-accreditation of that course in the institution concerned.
