Enroling in a university enables you to take advantage of opportunities in the workplace.

However, selecting an unaccredited university can make it difficult for you to get a good job on graduation. Because an unaccredited university means that the National Universities Commission has not certified your institution fit to provide tertiary education.

To save yourself the stress of convincing your potential employer that you’re good enough even when the name of the university on your certificate puts a question mark to that, you can check our list of accredited universities by the NUC.
