The National Universities Commission (NUC) has given full accreditation to four courses run by Trinity University, Yaba, Lagos.
In a letter addressed to the Vice-chancellor, the NUC listed the accredited four programmes as B. Sc. Microbiology, B. Sc. Computer Science and B.Sc. Information Technology in the Faculty of Basic, Medical and Applied Sciences. Also accredited is Mass Communication in the Faculty of Arts, Management and Social Sciences.
Full accreditation was given to the four courses by the NUC following the accreditation exercise that was carried out in December 2021 by a team of academic and professors from various universities across the country. They were sent by NUC to assess the quality of teaching, research and work going on in the institution.
In his reaction to the success of the accreditation, the Vice-Chancellor, Prof Charles Ayo expressed satisfaction with the exercise. According to him, “The fact that we got this done is a validation of the good work that we are doing as an institution. It is not an easy task for a university that is barely three years old to record such a feat.”
He thanks the members of Council of the university and all the staff for their dedication and urged them to continue to work harder to give the institution a good standing in the country and the academic community globally.
With the full accreditation granted the four courses by NUC, the degree awarded in the four programmes by the University is valid and recognized. Thus, certificates issued to graduates are presentable anywhere in the world, and also acceptable and usable to mobilize for the one-year mandatory National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) programme.
