EDUCATION UPDATES: NUC to Scrap Diploma Programmes in Nigerian Universities

The National Universities Commission (NUC) has stated plans to scrap the diploma programmes run at undergraduate level in Nigerian universities.

Prof. Abubakar Adamu Rasheed, the Executive Secretary of the commission, made this known in Abuja earlier this week, when he received the Executive Secretary of the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE), Dr Masaudu Kazaure.

According to Prof. Rasheed, only polytechnics had the statutory right to run diploma programmes, adding that the commission would soon notify universities to stop conducting the programmes.

It would be recalled, the NUC had announced a list of unaccredited courses in Nigerian universities.
The Commission had warned that any certificate issued for these courses will be considered void.

@enyinda: i see no reason why they should scrap Diploma in Universities. Other Countries run Diploma programmes in University, Nigeria shouldn't be an exception.

Enyinda Nathaniel Okey

There are programs for people who have waec... there are programs for people who already have degrees.. there are PGD programs that qualify people for masters degrees. It depends on the choice of the individual and where he/she fits. It is sad that rather than each university being autonomous to do what is right.. they are told to do what suits certain people.

Some universities already scrapped diploma including Bayero University Kano, and NUC ES is d one dat scrapped it wen he was d VC..

Sam Oladele Alebiosu

It should be scrapped, because is out of their core competent. Diploma should be left to polytechnics and other relevant institutions. While Universities should concentrate on B.Sc,B.Ed,B.A,MPA,M.Ed,M.A, B.Tech,MBBS.,LLB,LLM,M.Sc.,MBA,M.Phil,PhD. Etc as relevant to university education.
