Universities Approved For Part-time Programmes By NUC

Here is the list of Universities that have been approved to run Part-time / Sandwich programme by the National Universities Commission (NUC). This list was released by the NUC in their latest bulletin published 1st June, 2015 on their website. You would recall that the NUC had earlier asked all Universities running Part-time and sandwich programmes in Nigeria to stop. They later called on schools who were still interested in the programme to re-apply for approval.

Up to date, a total of thirty six (36) universities forwarded their completed documents, based on the approved format. Following the analysis of the submissions by the Department of Academic Standards and having satisfied the laid down guidelines for running Part – Time programme and Sandwich courses in Nigerian universities, all the thirty six (36) institutions were recommended to the Executive Secretary for approval. Consequent upon Executive Secretary’s approval, letters were communicated to the universities accordingly.
