NUC Gives Full Accreditation To 42 Undergraduate Programmes In OAU


The National Universities Commission (NUC) has approved the full accreditation for the faculties of Law, Dentistry, Basic Medical Sciences, Social Sciences and Science at the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile Ife.

This was discovered in a press release signed by the university’s Public Relations Officer, Mr Abiodun Olarewaju made available to Tribune.

It stated that NUC has given full (100 per cent) accreditation to all the academic programmes being run by the Faculty of Law, Faculty of Dentistry, Faculty of Basic Medical Sciences, Faculty of Social Sciences and Faculty of Science of the institution.

Similarly, the programmes being run by other faculties were also accredited, while all programmes at the Postgraduate level were also fully accredited.

Meanwhile, the Vice-Chancellor of the university, Professor Eyitope Ogunbodede, appraised the patriotic zeal of the Professor Abubakar Rasheed-led NUC, for giving in their best in ensuring that all academic programmes being run by the Nigerian universities were of international standard and their products equipped with required intellectual arsenal to compete favourably with their counterparts anywhere in the world.

He also appreciated the institutional spirit of the university’s members of the council led by Dr Yemi Ogunbiyi, the Senate, departmental, faculty and national alumni associations whose commitment assisted in much greater measure in putting all necessary facilities in place which eventually culminated in the accreditation of all the courses.

Ogunbodede said that with the latest accreditation of 42 undergraduate programmes, all the 107 programmes in the university are now accredited.

He, therefore, pledged that his administration would put in more efforts in ensuring the sustenance of the high moral, academic and cultural standards which the university is noted for.
