In further recognition of its determination to take university education in Nigeria to new heights, the National Universities Commission (NUC) has approved four additional courses to be offered at degree level by Trinity University (TU), Yaba, Lagos. The new courses are Nursing Science, Medical Laboratory Science, International Relations and Diplomacy, as well as Physics with Electronics.
According to a statement signed by the Vice-Chancellor, TU, Professor Charles Korede Ayo, the approval followed a thorough inspection of the institution’s facilities by the NUC, leading to the conclusion that it was adequately equipped to foster exceptional teaching and learning in the approved courses.
The communique added that the institution had consequently begun to admit students to the newly approved programmes for the current 2019/2020 academic session, stressing that the move is designed to be a huge relief and opportunity for students who have not been able to gain admission to study the highly competitive courses in other universities.
The four new courses have further swelled the number of courses approved for TU by the NUC. Courses earlier approved for the institution include Computer Science, Information Technology, Industrial Chemistry, Microbiology, Biotechnology, Biology, Business Administration, Accounting, Marketing, Tourism and Hospitality Management, Economics, Political Science, Mass Communication, and English and Literary Studies.
Expressing delight at this latest achievement by TU, Professor Ayo, who was the immediate past vice-chancellor of Covenant University, described it as a vital contribution to the advancement of tertiary education in Nigeria.
Assuring existing and prospective students of a “stimulating, dynamic and fulfilling environment” for learning, Ayo added that “it will also be good news to parents/guardians and potential students that the fees are moderate.”
Duly accredited by the Federal Government of Nigeria, Trinity University was established by Trinity Education and Development Foundation (TEDF), the promoters of Trinity International College, Ofada, Ogun State, which has been acclaimed as a world class secondary school with 25 years of quality education.
