OAU’s Law, Dentistry, Med. Rehab. and Other Departments that Just Recovered Their NUC Accreditation and their Admission for this Session
I’m sure you know how it went down in the 2017/2018 session when OAU lost the NUC accreditation of some departments, and how some of them gained the partial accreditation in the 2018/2019 session, and now in the 2019/2020—which is the good news we all are very happy about at the moment—all the departments have finally been restored to their full accreditation by NUC, and now they can go back to offering admission to candidates. But the question everyone is asking now is: are these departments going to be able to offer admission for the 2020/2021 session which the UTME for has already been written earlier this year?
Even if OAU has conducted her Post-UTME exams, it would still be possible for them to offer admission into the departments that just got their NUC accreditation back, they would just have to advise applicants who are interested in these departments and have the requirements for the departments to go change to any of the departments. And now, everything is even better—thanks to the pandemic for slowing all academic activities down for a while there. Since OAU has been able to do just nothing on the admission processes of the 2020/2021 session, it means the restored accreditation is just on time. It’s still very on time to add the departments back to JAMB portal (as they have been initially removed due to the accreditation issues), and ask applicants who are interested in these departments and have the requirements for them to go change to the departments. So applicants can be expectant of when the school would advise them to do just that, and they will… soon. So, congrats to the applicants who have always wanted to study any of these courses in OAU and have been left confused for a while, and have been made to have to choose another school or department, you all can have you department and the school of your choice now. The PEC team wishes you the best of luck in the endeavour.
