OAU gives reasons for NUC non-accreditation of Law, other courses


The management of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife has given reasons why several courses in the institution were not accredited by National University Commission (NUC). It attributed it to an existing regulation that does not allow for  “back to back interim status”.

The authorities of Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) had announced that candidates who applied to study Law, Dentistry, Fine and Applied Arts, Botany and Family Nutrition and Consumer Sciences for the 2018/2019 academic session in OAU should either change course or university due to non-accreditation by the National Universities Commission (NUC).

A statement by the school’s spokesman, Mr. Abiodun Olanrewaju disclosed that OAU and other affected institutions were denied accreditation because of the existing NUC regulation which does not allow for back to back interim status.

Olanrewajo stated that the general accreditation exercise was conducted across all universities in December, 2017 , saying the non-accreditation of some programmes cut across all universities and not peculiar to OAU.

“There are 106 programmes in the University of which the five mentioned above have issues with accreditation, although all these programmes actually had interim status during the last exercise.

“The University Management is working assiduously to address the issues raised by the NUC. It therefore has no doubt that the affected programmes will be restored hopefully in the forthcoming accreditation exercise slated for November, 2018.
