Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, has lost accreditation for four of the courses offered in the institution, Thecable reports.
The National Universities Commission (NUC) has reportedly suspended the university’s law, dentistry, medical rehabilitation, and botany programmes.
Prospective students who selected any of the four courses in the just-concluded Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) have been asked to change their course or institution.
A message was sent to the candidates by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) to inform them of the changes.
“Your first choice course did not receive accreditation. Login to your profile and change course/institutions,” the message read. Abiodun Olarenwaju, OAU’s public relations officer, confirmed the development.
