NOUN to admit one million students

The management of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) has announced that the institution is planning to increase its admission to one million students.
The chairman of the university’s governing council, Prof. Peter Okebokola said this at the council meeting in Abuja last Friday .
Okebukola said the university currently admits 450,000 students.
‘’The new council would work with the senate of the university to double enrolment to one million through the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) in the next couple of years.
“We have about 450, 000 students for now, but more importantly for us is that the quality of delivery of NOUN programmes will be significantly enhanced that in another two years, graduates from NOUN will be the best in Nigeria.
“We intend to pick and work with 10 programmes from the university to achieve this goal,” Okebukola said.
The council chairman added that students seeking admission into the NOUN would not sit for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) to get enrolled, but would be registered within the system of JAMB.
