NUC: Approved Universities to run Postgraduate Programmes in Nigeria

The National Universities Commission (NUC) has released the list of Universities approved to run postgraduate programmes in Nigeria, therefore in this article, I will give you the full list of NUC approved universities to run postgraduate programmes in Nigeria.

It was observed by the commission that some Parastatals and Institutes are awarding Postgraduate degrees, either on their own or through unapproved affiliations with Nigerian and foreign Universities. The commission deemed this practice inappropriate and stated that any qualifications/awards resulting from it are not recognized.

So, it doesn’t matter the Nigerian or Foreign University currently selling masters form or the Nigerian universities currently selling PGD form: If the Institute is not approved by the NUC to give postgraduate admission in Nigeria, then qualifications/awards resulting from it are not recognized in Nigeria.

Having said all this, postgraduate admission in Nigeria are handled by the following Universities.
