Here is the List of Universities Approved by NUC to Run a Post- Graduate Degree Award Programmes in Nigeria
what is Post Graduate Degree All about?
Post Graduate Programme involves learning and studying for academic or professional degrees, academic or professional certificates, academic or professional diplomas, or other qualifications for which a first or bachelor’s degree generally is required, and it is normally considered to be part of higher education.
A Postgraduate Degree is a degree which you study for once you have finished a bachelor’s degree.
As a general rule, you need to have completed a bachelor’s degree before doing a postgraduate degree (although there are some exceptions)
The reason you need to know the approved schools running a Post-Graduate Degree in Nigeria?
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 Ph.D. 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.
