Starting from 2019, NOUN Students will participate in NYSC and Law School after graduation.
The NOUN NYSC and Law School issues are finally over as Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has approved NYSC and Law school for NOUN Graduates.
Buhari Assented to the National Open University Amendment Act on Friday, December 7. The new assented act will allow the institution to operate as all other universities in the country.
All graduates of National Open University of Nigeria(NOUN) can now participate in NYSC and the Nigerian Law School.
President Buhari has also assented to National Open University Amendment Act, which allows the National Open University to operate as all other universities, having the same power and functions and the same administrative structures eliminating possible discrimination as some use to want to have on its products and programmes.
It has also allowed the establishment of some centers to be called study centers and given conditions for the establishment of such study centers,” he said.
The National Assembly had passed a bill for An Act to Amend the National Open University Act Cap N6 LFN 1983 (Amendment) Bill 2017’.
This new law therefore means all students who graduated from NOUN will be able to register and get mobilized for NYSC Batches(A, B and C) and Streams from 2019 and also they will be permitted to attend the Nigerian Law School.
The NYSC Mobilization Timetable for 2019 Batch A has been released. See NYSC 2019 Batch A registration starting date.
