Brief History of the Directorate of Part-Time Programmes

In 2002, following the directive of the federal government on the closure of all study centres, the Senate of the University closed all the existing study centres and absorbed the students in the various study centres into the Ado-Ekiti campus to enable them continue and complete their studies.

As of now the Part-Time Programme Unit is fully domiciled on the main campus of the University.

All examinations are moderated by both internal and external examiners while the graded examination scripts are moderated by external examiners.  As part of the requirements for the award of the degree, each student is required to carry out a research work and submit bound copies of the research findings.

Type of Certificate in the Programme

At the end of the completion of studies, students are awarded the certificates of the University based on their programme of study.  Since they also went through the same courses of study like their counterparts in the regular programmes, no distinction is made in the degree awarded them and the regular students.
