The Lagos State University (LASU) has achieved a significant academic milestone as the National Universities Commission (NUC) granted approval for the commencement of 20 new undergraduate programmes.

This accomplishment marks the first time in the university’s history that all programmes submitted for resource verification have been approved by the regulatory body.

The approved programmes encompass a range of disciplines, including Architecture, Building, Estate Management, Environmental Management, Industrial Design, Survey and Geo-Informatics, Quantity Surveying, Urban and Regional Planning, Fine Arts, Library and Information Science, Special Education, Industrial Engineering & Production, Radiography and Radiation Science, Medical Laboratory Science, Linguistics, Civil Engineering, Science Laboratory Technology, Taxation, Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D), and Doctor of Physiotherapy (DPT).

The NUC conducted a resource verification exercise in April of this year, assessing the 20 new programmes within the recently established faculties and school: Faculty of Pharmacy, Faculty of Allied Health Sciences, Faculty of Environmental Sciences, and School of Library, Archival and Information Science.

In a letter of approval received on July 7, 2023, the NUC stated that the programmes would be offered on a full-time basis, starting from the 2023/2024 academic session.

This achievement aligns with one of the strategic objectives of LASU’s current administration, led by Prof. Ibiyemi Ibilola Olatunji-Bello, mni, NPOM, which aimed to establish and initiate new academic programs in the university’s four new faculties and school.

Expressing her gratitude, the Vice-Chancellor of LASU acknowledged Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State, who also serves as the Visitor to the University, for providing leadership and support in realizing this goal. The Vice-Chancellor congratulated the entire university community on this remarkable achievement.

The press release was e-signed by Thomas-Onashile Oluwayemisi, Coordinator of the Centre for Information and Public Relations at Lagos State University.
