University of Ibadan (UI) has announced that it would not admit students into the Faculty of Pharmacy for the 2017/2018 session
The university could not meet up with the requirements for accreditation of pharmacy as a course.
The accreditation panel of the National Universities Commission (NUC) which recently visited the institution suspended the accreditation for the faculty.
However, according to a source in the institution, efforts are ongoing to ensure that the faculty is reaccredited before the 2018/2019 admission exercise.
A statement from the university entitled: “Attention applicants to Faculty of Pharmacy”, reads: “This is to inform candidates who chose Pharmacy in the University that candidates will not be admitted into the programme for the 2017/18 academic session. This is because the accreditation status of the programme had been denied by The National Universities Commission. Candidates are therefore advised to either change to another University or change their course in the University of Ibadan”.
