OAU Law, Dentistry, Others Get Full, 100% Accreditation

The National Universities Commission (NUC), which has the statutory mandate to accredit academic programmes in all Nigerian Universities, has given full (100%) accreditation to all the academic programmes being run by the Faculty of Law, Faculty of Dentistry, Faculty of Basic Medical Sciences, Faculty of Social Sciences and Faculty of Science of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife.

Programmes being run by other Faculties were also accredited by the NUC while all programmes at the Postgraduate level were also fully accredited.

Commenting on the results, the Vice-Chancellor of the University, Professor Eyitope Ogunbodede, lauded the patriotic zeal of the Professor Abubakar Rasheed-led NUC, for giving in their best in ensuring that all academic programmes being run by the Nigerian Universities were of international standards and their products equipped with required intellectual arsenal to compete favourably with their counterparts anywhere in the world.

A release by the Public Relations Officer of the University, Abiodun Olarewaju, stated that the Vice-Chancellor also appreciated the Institutional Spirit of the University’s members of the Council led by Dr. Yemi Ogunbiyi, the Senate, Departmental, Faculty and National Alumni Associations whose commitment assisted, in much greater measure, in putting all necessary facilities in place which eventually culminated in the accreditation of all our Courses, particularly the programmes with initial outright denial or partial accreditation.  With the latest accreditation of 42 undergraduate programmes, all the 107 programmes in the university are now accredited.

Professor Ogunbodede, therefore, pledged that his administration would put in more effort in ensuring the sustenance of the high moral, academic and cultural standards which the University is noted for.

He, again, called on all stakeholders in the education sector to do all within their power and means to assist the university in putting in place more structure and infrastructure that would make “us fully realize and bring into fruition the dreams of the founding fathers”.

Update on Admission into some Programmes for 2018/2019 Session

The Management of the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) is aware of the directive by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) that the 2018/2019 candidates who applied to study Law, Dentistry, Fine and Applied Arts, Botany and Family Nutrition and Consumer Sciences should either change course or university, due to non-accreditation by the National Universities Commission (NUC).

The general accreditation exercise was conducted across all universities in December, 2017 and the non-accreditation of some programmes cut across all universities and is 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, they were denied accreditation because of the existing NUC regulation which does not allow for back to back interim status.

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. We hereby use this medium to officially appreciate the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFUND) for the prompt release of funds to upgrade the existing structures and facilities in the University.

We appreciate the concern of all stakeholders, particularly parents/guardians and prospective students on this development and plead for their understanding.

The Management will continue to do all within its power to uphold and build upon the academic excellence for which the University is known.
