List of Approved Universities for Part-Time, Sandwich Programmes in Nigeria
The federal government, through the National Universities Commission (NUC), has published a list of tertiary institutions approved in Nigeria to offer part-time and sandwich programmes.
In a bid to check and streamline the operations of programmes across universities, NUC has prohibited admissions by some schools in this regard.
The commission also asked universities to disclose all Part-Time and Sandwich programmes, with respect to enrollment and staffing profile, within one month of the publication, and to conduct internal staff and student audits and send their reports to its head office.
Not all Nigerian universities are allowed to run the programmes. It added that admissions into the programmes must go through the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) and that they must be run only in approved campuses of universities where the human and material resources for the teaching of the courses are on the main campus of the universities.
