NOUN Graduates Now To Participate In NYSC And Law School

The Senate on Thursday amended the law establishing the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) to enable graduates of the institution participate in the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) scheme and the Law school.

This means that all graduates of the Open University can now go for National Youth Service while those that graduated from law can now go for Law school after graduation.

The amendment followed the clause by clause consideration of the report of the Senate Committee on Tertiary Institutions and TETFUND chaired by Senator Jibrin Barau (APC, Kano) on the amendment of NOUN Act.

The review aligned the NOUN’s Act with the requirements of the Universities Miscellaneous Provisions (Amendment) Act 2012, the law which regulate all Universities in the country

Barau said the amendment would address the perception of the public about the University in respect of the word correspondence, which gives the impression that the University is not a full time University and as such seen as part time.

“These two concepts correspondence and part-time significantly affect the way the public views the programs run by the University.

“This has been the reason why the Law Graduates of the School are not admitted into the Nigerian Law School as well as the reason for the non inclusion of the graduates of the University into the National Youth Service Corps Scheme, “he said.

Explaining further, he said law graduates of NOUN can now go to the Nigerian law school and can be called to bar while graduates of the institution can now go for NYSC.
