7 Things You Should Know About NOUN- Nigeria

Unread post by Kunle Emmanuel » Sun Jan 10, 2016 7:11 pm

You are limited in several ways by the information available to you. The reason for education in the first place is to learn, to acquire information and skills. You may have heard about NOUN but I think it is time to look into the school and see what the school is offering instead of assuming and reading some erroneous information about the school. With 70 centres and over 400000 students, I bet a wrong opinion will not change the trend.

Here are 7 things you should know about NOUN. I have written this to allay your misconception and probably give you a perspective on Open University.

1. Open University is a global concept.
Open University did not start in Nigeria; it is a global educational concept that has been around for about 50 years.
Today, there are more than 60 open universities in the world, in countries like USA, Canada, Australia, India, Thailand, UK, Cyprus, Hong Kong, Israel, Malaysia, Netherland, Japan, Greece and some more.
The concept of Open University was founded on the belief that communications technology could bring high quality degree-level learning to people who had not had the opportunity to attend traditional campus universities.

2. NOUN has increased access to education
NOUN offers amazing flexibility. It increases access to education for those who otherwise have no other opportunities due to work, family, age or physical limitations.
NOUN allows you to change your study centre, thus you are not affected by transfer at work or change of environment.
NOUN has come as a blessing to Police, NSCDC, NURTW, Prisons, Public servants and other students who want to study further while continuing with jobs or who might not be able to attend a full-time.

3. NOUN is a Federal Government School
As a Federal Government University, NOUN is favored. There is no fear of credibility or authenticity of license.
NOUN is NUC approved for graduates, Masters and Ph.D programmes. NUC approval is the ultimate; it is what makes university a university in Nigeria.
I am a pro federal government school anyway.

4. No Union action or strike
It is common in Nigeria to add one or two years to when you are suppose to graduate. ASUU strike and student protest are some of the factors that can elongate your years in the university.
At NOUN, no union action or strike necessitate you to wait few more years before you graduate, you are almost certain of your year of graduation even from the beginning.

5. NYSC Exception Letters
NYSC was not created to confirm university degrees. NYSC certificate is just saying “you have served Nigeria”
NYSC exception letters made available to NOUN graduates is equivalent to NYSC certificate.
NOUN has over 400000 students and still growing, the population of 10-20 Universities. If you incorporate that population to NYSC, NYSC will need almost double of its facility to accommodate the numbers.

6. NOUN has Rep
A former president of this country is an alumnus of NOUN. Royal fathers, celebrities, members of State house rep have considered NOUN as a place to study.
They have a correct knowledge of what NOUN is offering.

7. Admission is easy and open.
NOUN will not let JAMB jam you. You don’t need JAMB or post JAMB to gain admission into NOUN. NOUN admits students every semester and forms are continually on sale.

Please be informed that NOUN does not give any other certificate than BNSC at the completion of the degree program. Currently we are working on how RN ,RM and PublicHealth Diploma certificate will be inclusive. And for those people contemplating on either RM can apply. Yes you can apply if you are RM single qualified but I learnt You must enroll to in any other basic school to earn your RN before the completion of your BNSC program. If Lagos Study centre reject your application, other study centres will accept it ,if you need recommendation.

Also payment school fee is the same across all the study centre. With N63,000 you are covered forthe first semester as a fresher while N32,000 will cover you for the second semester.

As regards the proclamation by most people that NOUN doesn't give lectures to there students, I wish to inform you that NOUN has make provision of lectures called"Facilitation" for their students irrespective of the course/courses they are offering.

If you have interest in applying Kindly go to the study centre nearest to you to inquire more or you post your question here. You will be given factual and precised information you needed.

NOUN has been accredited by Both NMCN and NUC, although it is two years accreditation before they will gain full accreditation.
