Online Degrees ‘Unacceptable’ In Nigeria – NUC

The National University Commission, NUC, has revealed that online degrees are unacceptable in the country.

According to the commission, the federal government approved e-Learning programme of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN).

This was contained in a statement, signed by Ibrahim Usman Yakasai, Director of Information and Public Relations.

Aside NOUN, other institutions endorsed for e-Learning are University of Uyo, Usmanu Danfodiyo University, Sokoto, and University of Maiduguri.

The statement reads:

“Online degrees are not accepted at the moment in Nigeria,”

“However, this does not include the approved Nigerian universities’ e-Learning programme run within the shores of Nigeria.

“The Nigerian universities e-Learning programme is a legitimate and well-thought out pilot e-learning initiative. It is a Public Private Partnership between the National Universities Commission (NUC), Park Associates E-Learning Group and four federal universities.

“The commission wishes to use this medium to allay all fears and doubts concerning the legitimacy or NUC endorsement of the Nigerian universities’ e-Learning Programme.

“Students in the programme are urged to continue to pursue their studies without fear and prospective applicants are encouraged to enrol.” it added.
