NUC develops minimum standard for 13 Postgraduate disciplines
 From ZION ZADOK, Abuja

The National Universities Commission (NUC) has developed a benchmark for the minimum academic standards for 13 postgraduate disciplines in the nation?s university education system.

 Following the presentation of the documents by the NUC Executive Secretary, Prof. Julius Okojie, the Minister of Education, Professor Ruqayyatu Rufa?i stated that the development of Benchmarks Minimum Academic Standards (BMAS) for postgraduate education in Nigeria would hence forth be useful as a reference document for accreditation of postgraduate programmes in Nigerian universities.

 Noting that quality with reference to university education does not just evolve but require certain ingredients  for its attainment, Rufai said the development of the BMAS for the 13 disciplines in the Nigerian university system will give the needed guide about the framework and content of the academic programs available in the university.
 The BMAS according to her will help immensely in research work adding that it is a known fact the world over that the art of meaningful research begins at the postgraduate level.

 The production of more graduate students she said will definitely increase the quantity and quality of research in the Nigerian university system even as she said it will in turn encourage the industry to patronize the universities to meet their yearning in research and development needs and strengthen the weak link between the universities and the industry by propelling the national innovation system to the desired level.

 Rufa?I noted that before the development of the MBA BMAS which served as a pilot for the other postgraduate programmes, the MBA program was run haphazardly across the system.
 According to her, ?the developed postgraduate BMAS will ensure that universities follow due process in the establishment of their postgraduate programs through the appropriate NUC Resource Verification exercise and subsequent approval.

 The thirteen volumes were each representing the disciplines of the Nigerian university system which includes; Law, Engineering and Technology, Pharmacy, Social Sciences, Art, Medicine, Sciences, Administration, Agricultural Sciences, Veterinary Medicine, Basic Medical and Health Sciences, Environmental Sciences and Education.
 The minister then directed NUC to immediately produce and distribute the BMAS to all universities across the country.
 Earlier in his remark, the Executive Secretary of NUC, Prof Julius Okojie said his commission defied all odd to produce the standard benchmark to ensure and maintain sanity in the Nigerian universities by streamlining the programs.
 He maintained that the BMAS is the minimum benchmark expected of every post graduate discipline but schools concerned are very free to replicate standard beyond the set benchmark and urged institutions to desist from compromising standards.
