NUC Accredits Four Trinity University’s Courses

*ICAN president visits, seeks collaboration

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.
This is coming as the President of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN), Mrs. Comfort Olu Eyitayo, has pledged the support of the Institute to Trinity University, Yaba, Lagos.
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.
The ICAN president, Mrs. Comfort Olu Eyitayo, who visited the university on Wednesday, April 22, 2022, said the Institute as the apex body of accountants in the country and recognized all over the world, is building synergy with educational institutions across the country to ensure corporate governance and accountability.
She said her visit was important because of the need to make students realise the importance of the profession and keep its ethics.
Welcoming the president, the Vice-Chancellor, Prof Charles Ayo, expressed delight at the visit of the ICAN team to the institution and said it was a recognition of the efforts of the university in making great strides since it was licensed in 2019.
He emphasized that the school authorities would continue to look for opportunities for its students to collaborate and learn more from professionals. Prof Ayo said the idea of the founding fathers of the institution was to ensure students that are produced by the institution are able to add values to the society.
