Nigeria University Commission’s Board has observed with dismay that some Universities still run Foundation and Diploma programmes, despite the fact that the Federal Ministry of Education, through the National Council on Education has outlawed it some years ago.
It is further observed that candidates use such Diploma Certificates to seek for admission into Degree Programmes through DIRECT ENTRY applications.
The Board wishes to reiterate that such qualifications (University Diplomas) are NOT ACCEPTABLE for admissions into Nigerian Universities through Direct Entry applications.
Please accept the assurances of the Registrar/
Sulaman Y. Muhammad
Consequent on the the above decision of the National Universities Commission (NUC) against running of Diploma Programmes and Diploma Certificate by Universities, it is to be emphasized that “USE YOUR DIPLOMA CERTIFICATE FOR ADMISSION INTO THE UNIVERSITY WHERE YOU GOT IT. IT MAY/WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED FOR ADMISSIONS INTO OTHER UNIVERSITIES”.
Please, be guided by this information.
Help share this, you just might be helping a friend.
