A letter signed by NUC’s director of accreditation, Dr Maryam Sali, confirmed that programmes examined include Management Sciences, Arts, Education, Science and Social Sciences accreditation.
“The university will start admitting post- graduate students into its master’s classes in all the accredited academic programmes,’’ he said.
He said this was in addition to courses that had already been accredited which the post-graduate school of the institution had already given admissions to students.
Ademuyiwa said that the institution’s vice chancellor, Professor Soremekun and his management staff, were delighted with the results of the NUC’s accreditation team.
“The management of the institution promised to work hard to ensure that virtually all the courses of the university are given full accreditation.”
