The courses were assessed by the NUC during accreditation visit to the University in November 2016 .
The courses which now enjoy full accreditation are Accounting, Business Administration, Arabic Studies , Christian Religious Studies , English Language as well as History and Diplomatic Studies .
Others are Islamic Studies , Linguistics , Philosophy , Theatre Arts, History Education and Social Studies Education.
The seventh Governing Council of UNIABUJA has confirmed the development saying while new new programmes had been on , over 28 courses were accredited by the NUC within four years .
The spokesperson of the Council , Prof . Ediga Agbo ,speaking with journalists during a press briefing that they met UNIABUJA in a sorry state , with only three out of 42 courses accredited coupled with incessant riots by students and disagreement with the unions.
He said :
“ The situation then looked so bleak that we wondered if there was a university. The Engineering students had been sent out to other universities and the medical students were on strike as they had spent four to five years without accreditation and the Council confronted these situations head - on .
“ Today , the university has 53 programmes with 28 having full accreditation , 23 have interim accreditation and others have denials , ” he stressed .
He also added that,UNIABUJA , having put all the necessary requirements in place, looked forward to the next accreditation coming up in May and hopes to get 95 per cent of accreditation .
In his words , the council has established a Faculty of Pharmaceutical Science , Sports Council and Department of Physical Education, Kinetics and Recreation , which are likely to take off in the next or upper academic year.
