Nigeria’s premier tertiary institution, the University of Ibadan, UI has announced that it would not admit students for the course for Pharmacy in the 2017/2018 session following the denial of accreditation for the course by the National Universities Commission.
This magazine gathered that the faculty could not meet up with the requirements for accreditation; hence the accreditation panel which recently visited the institution suspends the accreditation for the faculty.
However, according to a source in the institution, efforts are ongoing to ensure that the faculty is reaccredited before 2018/2019 admission exercise.
In a statement announcing the development, titled, “Attention applicants to Faculty of Pharmacy”, the institution said, “This is to inform candidates who chose Pharmacy in the University that candidates will not be admitted into the programme for the 2017/18 academic session. This is because the accreditation status of the programme had been denied by The National Universities Commission. Candidates are therefore advised to either change to another University or change their course in the University of Ibadan”.
