You’re here: List Of Major Courses You Must Not Study In Nigeria. The truth is that If you study these courses in Nigeria, you are in trouble. NUC has advised university candidates to be careful when it comes to choosing courses in specific universities.
The National Universities Commission (NUC) has reported that at last 150 undergraduate academic programmes in Nigeria’s public and private universities are unaccredited.
The NUC, in a report made exclusively available to PremiumTimes, disclosed that the unaccredited courses are domiciled in 37 of 143 universities in the country.
For a course to be accredited, the NUC says, it must meet the Benchmark Minimum Academic Standards (BMAS) that has been drawn up by the commission.
Such a course, officials say, must have qualified faculty members, good learning environment, and adequate teaching materials – equipment, books, and journals.
The NUC says accreditation of courses is necessary to ensure “employers and other members of the community that Nigerian graduates of all academic programmes have attained an acceptable level of competency in their areas of specialization.”
