Metro NUC Scraps Sub-degree Diploma Programs in Nigerian Universities



✅ NEW - car park, swimming pool, 24 hours light/security and more.
The National University Commission, NUC, has announced the scrapping of sub-degree diploma programmes in Nigerian universities.

Speaking after a meeting with federal and state university representatives on Monday, NUC Executive Secretary, Abubakar Adamu said universities currently running the programmes have been directed to begin to wind down immediately.

He said it was discovered that running such programmes was not the business of universities, rather Polytechnics.

“The Federal Government, as far back as November, 2001, had issued a circular stating that such diplomas could not be used for employment or promotion purposes in the Public Service,” he said.

Rather than stretch their facilities to run sub-degree programmes, he said universities should direct their energies towards their primary function of producing high level manpower for the economy, by strengthening their part-time programmes, to offer high quality undergraduate degrees and postgraduate diplomas and degrees.
