OAU Gets Full Accreditation For Law, Dentistry, Others

OAU Gets Full Accreditation For Law, Dentistry, Others
It was found that the OAU's accreditation for medicine , dentistry and other programs was revoked by the NUC in 2018.

In a statement by the university's Public Relations Officer (PRO), Abiodun Olarewaju, he said all the programs had been fully accredited by the NUC, with the constitutional requirement to accredit academic programs in all Nigerian universities.

According to him, the NUC also approved programs run by other departments, while all programs at the postgraduate level were fully approved, too. All 107 programs at the university are now accredited with the new accreditation of 42 undergraduate programmes.

Of the fourty-two (42) courses offered at the University, thirty-seven (37) were granted full accreditation while five ( 5) others were granted provisional accreditation.

The statement quoted OAU Vice-Chancellor Prof. Eyitope Ogunbodede as praising NUC for giving in its best to ensure that all academic programs run by the country's universities are of international quality.

He also admired what he called the institutional spirit of the Governing Council of the university, headed by Dr. Yemi Ogunbiyi, the Senate, and all the departments, faculties, and alumni associations.

The vice-chancellor said that their commitment had assisted, in much greater measure, in ensuring all the necessary facilities are in place, which eventually culminated in the accreditation of all the courses, particularly those with initial outright denial or partial accreditation.
