Candidates who chose to study Law, Dentistry, Medical Rehabilitation and Botany at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife in the just concluded Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination have been asked to change their course or institution.
It was learnt that the approval to offer the courses at the university has been suspended by the National Universities Commission (NUC).
The message sent to the candidates by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board read: “Your first choice course did not receive accreditation. Login to your profile and change course/institutions.”
It was gathered that the accreditation of Faculty of Law at the OAU was earlier withdrawn in 2006.
It was also learnt that Botany never got full accreditation since its commencement at the OAU. (Daily Independent)
