​This is a list of over 100 higher institution courses that remain unaccredited by the National Universities Commission as obtained by an online newspapers.


2016 accreditation status report by the National Universities Commission (NUC) has revealed 150 courses being taught in Nigerian schools are disturbingly yet to accredited.
According to Premium Times, the unapproved academic progreammes are currently operational in Nigeria’s public and private universities as exposed by the Quality Assurance Department of the NUC is in charge of accrediting courses in the universities.

The accrediting body states that for a course to be accredited, the NUC says, it must meet the Benchmark Minimum Academic Standards (BMAS) that has been drawn up by the commission.

Such a course, officials say, must have qualified faculty members, good learning environment and adequate teaching materials – equipment, books and journals.

The NUC says accreditation of courses is necessary to ensure “employers and other members of the community that Nigerian graduates of all academic programmes have attained an acceptable level of competency in their areas of specialization.”

The commission says it is also important to certify courses to assure “the international community that the programmes offered in Nigerian Universities are of high standards and that graduates of the institutions are adequate for employment and further studies.”

According to the NUC, pre-accreditation activities include drawing up a list of academic programmes to be certified, compilation of list of panel chairmen/members, time-tabling, budgeting and organizing the accreditation coordination meeting for panel chairmen and members in a simulation workshop.
