NUC List of Approved e-Learning Institutions in Nigeria

National Universities Commission (NUC) List of Approved e-Learning Institutions in Nigeria.

The general public is hereby informed that whereas the Commission maintains its stand that online degrees are not accepted in Nigeria at the moment, this does not include the approved Nigerian Universities e-Learning Programme run within the shores of Nigeria.

The Nigerian Universities e-Learning Programme is a legitimate and well thought out pilot elearning initiative. 

It is a Public Private Partnership between the National Universities Commission (NUC), Park Associates E-Learning Group, and four federal universities. 

Its goal is to provide new opportunities for students to access university education in Nigeria.
The Twelve (12) Participating Universities are:

1 University of Ibadan, Ibadan Distance Learning Centre
2 Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife Centre for Distance Learning
3 University of Lagos, Akoka Distance Learning Institute
4 University of Maiduguri, Maiduguri Centre for Distance Learning
5 Modibbo Adama University of Technology, Yola Centre for Distance Learning
6 University of Abuja, Abuja Centre for Distance Learning and Continuing Education
7 Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso LAUTECH Distance Learning Centre
8 Ahmadu Bello University Zaria Distance Learning Centre ABU, Zaria
9 Lagos State University Lagos State University Open and Distance Learning and Research Institute
10 Joseph Ayo Babalola University University JABU Center for Distance Learning
11 University of Nigeria Nsukka UNN Center for Distance and e-Learning
12 Federal University of Technology Minna Center for Open Distance and e-Learning

Students enrolled in the Programme can select any of the following undergraduate degree programmes: Economics, Banking & Finance, Accounting, Business Administration and
Marketing for which they have requisite qualifications

The Programme for now is only available for candidates who wish to obtain BSc Degree in Economics.

The Commission wishes to use this medium to allay all fears and doubts concerning the legitimacy or NUC endorsement of the Nigerian Universities e-Learning Programme.

This is one of the avenues that the National Universities Commission is exploring to increase access to university education without compromising quality.

Students in the Programme are therefore advised to continue to pursue their studies without fear and prospective applicants are encouraged to enrol.

Concerned parents, guardians, students and the general public may contact the Commission for further clarification on the Programme under reference.
