West Africa’s foremost Open and Distance Learning (ODL) university, The National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), has commenced admission and registration into its numerous programmes for the 2020/2021 session.

The admission and registration portals of the university were opened since July 2020, in the very heart of the Covid-19 lockdown, and would remain opened till the end of October 2020. Admission is available to various categories of applicants, from undergraduates, postgraduate diplomas, Masters and Doctors of Philosophy with basic requirement of Senior School Certificate (SSC) with five credits in relevant subjects (including English Language and Mathematics) at not more than two sittings (for more on required documents see the table below). Candidates who vie for admission into postgraduate diploma, Master and PhD programmes must provide their first and second degree certificates as applicable.

The university which has the highest students’ population, among all tertiary institutions in Nigeria, with over 500,000 students at 88 study centres across the country is an institution to beat in quality education delivery. It is on record that NOUN is the only university in Nigeria that has PhD as benchmark qualification for its lecturers.

Moreover, it is the only university where staff do not go on strike. As an ODL institution, NOUN’s instructional delivery is driven and mediated by Information and Communication Technology (ICT), the reason teaching and learning activities were not disrupted by the recent Covid-19 lockdown that brought the whole world to its knees.

For affordable and quality education without hitches, NOUN is the place to be. Check out for more information on https://www.nouonline.net
