Names of universities approved to run post-graduate programmes in Nigeria

Following the proliferations of degree awarding institutions in Nigeria without requisite manpower and approval, the National Universities Commission (NUC) has released a list of approved post-graduate awarding institutions in Nigeria.

According to the commission, some Nigerian universities are presently running unapproved post-graduate programmes, leading to the award of Masters and PhD degrees.

To this end, the office of the Executive Secretary had in a bulletin dated May 14 listed some federal, state and private universities currently allowed to issue such certificates to students in Nigeria.

“The commission has also observed some parastatals and institutes awarding these same postgraduate degrees, either on their own or through unapproved affiliation with Nigerian and foreign universities,” the bulletin said.

The commission in the bulletin frowned at such practices as not only unethical, “but also antithetical to time -tested quality assurance best practices”.

“The commission hereby notifies the general public that only the following universities have approval to offer postgraduate programmes at the Masters’ and Ph.D levels in Nigeria as of July 30,2012,” the bulletin said .
