Centre for Pre-Degree and Part-Time Programmes
The establishment of the Centre is premised on the University’s conviction that it should play key role in the emancipation of the youth from the current learning outcome doldrums, particularly with the obvious challenges being faced by them while searching for admission into tertiary institutions in Nigeria.The Centre will co-ordinate all Pre-Degree and Part-Time Programmes of the University.
The Centre will run academic programmes that will help bring education closer to the relatively matured individuals who may wish to acquire Bachelor’s degree while on their job. In doing this, facilities and infrastructure in sufficient quantity and quality will be provided. This is in terms of ensuring that the quality of the resource persons and facilities that will be available for the teaching of the courses to be run by the Centre are the same with that of the full-time programmes in the University. In order to source and encourage prospective students to seek admission into some courses with low students’ patronage (e.g. natural sciences etc), this Directorate will identify such courses and propose Pre-Degree programmes for an intensive one-year programme leading to admission into Full-Time degree in the University. The directorate shall also coordinate Part-Time/ Sandwich Degree Programmes activities of the University such as for working class individuals, NCE holders wishing to upgrade to degree etc. This should also provide some IGR for the University.
The Directorate will be headed by a Director appointed by the Vice Chancellor.
