HND/BSC Dichotomy Removed
The Nigeria Government has removed dichotomy between HND and B.SC in federal civil service, however HND to BSC conversion programmes are still done in various Nigerian Universities. This is due to the fact that most polytechnic graduates still fear the common HND and B.SC disparity experienced in the labor market.
FG Scraps HND
In June 2018, The Federal Government stopped polytechnics from issuing HND certificates.
The new policy states that polytechnics will now be merged with universities to award National Diploma, ND and Bachelor of Technology, BTech. The award of HND will therefore, be limited to only the students that are currently admitted for the programmes in Polytechnics across the country.
