University of Abuja and University of Benin on the list raises eye brows

Adibe Moses

So what will happen to dos graduates dat graduated from one of dos unaccredited courses now?

Endy Edeson

@Adibe: the accreditation of courses by NUC is a continous process. A course that is not accredited today can be accredited tomorrow. Though, it is risky to go for unaccredited course because some employers and companies reject such certificates

Adibe Moses

U didn't get my question well bro. I mean dos dat av already graduated frm one of d listed courses in one of d above sch mentioned.

Endy Edeson

ok. well, according to NUC, such certificates are not valid and not recongnised except if the course is later accredited by NUC, that it will be valid. I wonder if this accreditation thing even affect the students in Nigeria. Imagine University of Abuja with lots of unaccredited course and students are graduating from the school. To me, the accreditation thing is just a requisite to promote academic excellence in Universities
