KWASU gets NUC’s accreditation for 18 programmes

The National Universities Commission (NUC) has granted full accreditation status to the 18 undergraduate and postgraduate programmes presented by Kwara State University (KWASU) in the Malate area of the state.

This was contained in a statement issued by the Acting Director of University Relations, Dr. Saeedat Aliyu, on Wednesday, June 19, 2024.

Aliyu stated that the application was for the October/November 2023 round of accreditation of academic programmes at KWASU.

He noted that the accreditation was contained in a letter addressed to the KWASU Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Shaykh-Luqman Jimoh, dated June 6, 2024, and signed by the Acting Director of Accreditation, Abraham Chundusu.

“The accreditation is for six postgraduate and 12 undergraduate programmes valid for a period of five years,” the letter stated.

It listed the programmes to include Public Health, Film Studies and Production, Agricultural Engineering, Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Food Science and Technology, Mechanical Engineering, and Fine and Applied Arts.

Others are Chemistry, Plant and Environmental Biology, Political Science, Tourism and Hospitality Management, and Mass Communication.

The postgraduate programmes are M.Sc. Accounting, M.Sc. Business Administration, Masters in Business Administration, M.Sc. Finance, M.Sc. Public Administration, and Masters in Public Administration.

Aliyu, therefore, quoted the KWASU Vice-Chancellor as describing the result as reflective of the commitment of the management and staff of the university.

Jimoh equally appreciated the roles played by the Kwara State Government and the Ministry of Tertiary Education, commending their support during the accreditation.
