A large number of dependent educational institutions are linked to a reputable university. Several of the schools affiliated to the universities in this list are colleges of education, seminaries, theology schools as well as other degree awarding academic institutions. This article is a complete list of educational institutions in Nigeria that are associated with NUC certified universities.
NIGERIAN UNIVERSITIES’ AFFILIATED EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS
The National Universities Commission issues licenses to all legal universities in Nigeria, for the purposes of this discussion (NUC). This is accomplished through a process known as accreditation. As a result, they are able to give degrees and diplomas without running afoul of the government.
However, there are several other institutions that issue degrees in association with some of the NUC-accredited universities. Nonetheless, we’ll go over them in a minute.
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT AFFILIATE INSTITUTIONS APPROVED BY THE NUC
So here are a few things to keep in mind when it comes to educational institutes that are linked with universities:
- Although they are not universities, students who enroll through them can earn degrees.
- They continue to operate their regular programs differently than the NUC-accredited degree-granting programs.
- Candidates interested in university-affiliated courses must take the same Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) as those on the major campuses.
- The parent schools of such institutions keep a careful eye on the degree-granting programs.
- Such approved programs may result in students receiving degrees from their parent university.
- Students may be eligible for the NYSC if their parent institutions submit their names to the organization.
- Furthermore, before enrolling in any degree-granting institution in Nigeria, check to determine if it is accredited or linked with a university. However, they are not included in the official list of NUC-accredited university associate institutions.
- Then you should keep an eye out for other universities that have received the NUC’s mark of approval on this subject.
In Nigeria, a number of colleges and universities offer degree programs on the campuses of other degree-granting institutions, such as polytechnics and colleges of education.
This is an agreement made between two tertiary education institutions that university programs will be held on their respective campuses rather than the university’s main campus. Please keep in mind that this is not a part-time program, but rather a regular degree program offered at the parent university on the same day. The main distinction is that the course is taught on a campus that is affiliated with it.
