National Open University To Partner With Radio Nigeria & NTA on journalism practicals

The National Open University of Nigeria ( NOUN) is partnering the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria ( FRCN ) for the use its studios for practicals by mass communication students of the institution.

The vice chancellor , Prof. Abdalla Uba Adamu who disclosed this when he visited the Director- General of the FRCN, Dr . Mansur Liman in his office said the partnership would provide students an opportunity for practicals and other tutorials requiring hands -on learning.

He said : “ Practicals is a critical component of mass communication , and its Benchmark Minimum Academic Standard ( BMAS ) demands a practical exposure of the students . You can imagine three to four thousand students , where will they go for practicals when we don’ t have a laboratory? We decided to exploit the possibility of creating an understanding with FRCN and the Nigeria Television Authority ( NTA ) to enable our students ’ use these facilities .
The vice chancellor noted that practical work is central to the accreditation requirements of the National Universities Commission ( NUC ) .

With a student population of over 421, 000 and unevenly spread across the country , Prof Adamu expressed confidence that the national spread of FRCN would enable them access ready studios for practicals easily. He clarified that the partnership is not aimed at further imposing financial burden on the students , but to expose them to the practical rudiments of their profession.

@Frank: You comment is funny but it is a serious matter. Sometimes, it's not the university's fault, it could be the student's inability to have followed up. NOUN has been in partnership with relevant bodies in assisting students on practical bases

mr endy, the versities too gat faults, thier job is to teach the students ,so when they are out of sch they can work wit it...
