List of Nigerian Universities Approved to Run Postgraduate Programmes

The National Universities Commission (NUC) has released the list of Universities approved to run postgraduate programmes at the Masters and Ph.D levels in Nigeria.

NUC releases names of Nigerian universities approved for post-graduate programmes

The National Universities Commission (NUC) has observed with great concern that some Nigerian universities are running unapproved postgraduate programmes, leading to the award of Masters and PhD degrees. The Commission has also observed that some Parastatals and Institutes are awarding these same Postgraduate degrees, either on their own or through unapproved affiliations with Nigerian and foreign Universities. Such practices are not only unethical, but also antithetical to time-tested quality assurance best practices. The qualifications/awards resulting therefrom are not recognized.
