Lately, the National Universities Commission (NUC) has finally released the list of some courses that have not been accredited in some Nigeria university. National Universities Commission (NUC) also said that any certificate issued for those courses will be considered void and also, National Universities Commission (NUC) confirmed that the university of Abuja has the highest number of unaccredited courses which is clearly shown in the list below.
Further more the unaccredited courses pose a severe danger to students who study them as the certificates issued by these universities for the courses will not be officially recognized, hmm! this is totally unbelievable. From the reports of Premium Times, it says that the 2016 accreditation status report indicated that these unaccredited courses were taught in 37 out of 143 universities in the country (Nigeria).

National Universities Commission (NUC) also says it is also important to certify courses to assure “the international community that the programmes offered in Nigerian Universities are of a very high standards and that graduates of the institutions are very adequate for employment and further studies if they wish.”
