Written by Elvis Boniface

The National Universities Commission (NUC) has released the list of Unaccredited courses in Nigerian Universities. According to the 2016 accreditation status report by the National Universities Commission (NUC) the unaccredited courses are domiciled in 37 of 143 universities in the country.

According to this report, all certificates issued for these unaccredited courses will be rendered void henceforth and will not be recognized officially.The NUC says, for a course to be accredited, it must meet the Benchmark Minimum Academic Standards (BMAS) that has been drawn up by the commission.

Some of the requirements include qualified faculty members, good learning environment and adequate teaching materials – equipment, books and journals.

Some of the high profile institutions include University of Nigeria, Nsukka; University of Benin, University of Jos, University of Calabar. The biggest casualty seems to be the University of Abuja which has 15 of its courses, including Law, unaccredited.
