If you are seeking admission into any of the NOUN programmes, whether diploma, undergraduate or Postgraduate programmes, this article will help.

In this article, I have listed all the NOUN accredited courses for diploma, undergraduate and postgraduate programmes respectively for 2020/2021 academic session.

I have also outlined the 2020/2021 NOUN admission requirement for any prospective NOUN student.

It is essential for all prospective students and candidates who will be vying for admission into the National Open University of Nigeria, NOUN  to note that days ago, the official list was approved and published in collaboration with the Nigerian University Commission.

The good news is that the nursing science Program of the National Open University of Nigeria has been accreditated by the Nigerian University Commission, which means any admission applicant can now study to become a nurse with the NOUN and be granted recognition upon graduation.
