UNIABUJA Distance Learning Programme Now Approved By NUC
The University of Abuja in the Nigerian capital Abuja was established on January 1, 1988 (under Decree No. 110 of 1992 as amended) as a dual-mode university with the mandate to run conventional and distance learning programmes. Academic work began in the University in 1990 with the matriculation of the pioneers students.
For some of us who may not know, distance learning is a method of studying in which lectures are broadcast or lessons are conducted by correspondence, without the student needing to attend a school or college.
In response to the fast evolving world and advancement in education that provides education online, UNIABUJA has gotten their distance learning programme approved by the NUC.
The National Universities Commission (NUC) has lifted the suspension it placed on the University of Abuja (UNIABUJA) Centre for Distance Learning (CDL), following the fulfillment of the conditions under which the programme was suspended.
The Vice-Chancellor of UniAbuja, Prof. Michael Adikwu, who made this disclosure, said that the institution will advertise for admission into the programme in accordance with laid down rules.
The vice chancellor said “the NUC gave us some conditions which we needed to meet; they talked about infrastructure, which we have put in place.
“The Commission also talked about our Information Communication Technology system; which we have fixed; that is why we are able to get accreditation.
“The normal procedure is to advertise in the dailies; have them evaluated; sell forms; and then students will be admitted into the programme, which means it has been normalised,” he said.
Adikwu added that there were still other things NUC wanted the institution to do so that the scope of CDL would be enlarged. (NAN)
