About National Open University

The National Open University of Nigeria popularly known NOUN is a Federal Open and Distance Learning (ODL) institution that was first established on 22 July 1983 as a springboard for open and distance learning in Nigeria after which it was suspended by the government on 25 April 1984.

However, the school began operation again on 12 April 2001 by the President emeritus of Nigeria, Gen. Olusegun Obasanjo. At take-off of the university, pioneer student enrollment stood at 32,400.

Howbeit, the NOUN university has grown to be the first of its kind in the West African sub-region and also Nigeria’s largest tertiary institution in terms of student numbers.
