National Universities Commission

About NUC

The National Universities Commission (NUC) is a parastatal under the Federal Ministry of Education (FME). In its over 47 years of existence, the Commission has transformed from a small office in the cabinet office to an important arm of government in the area of development and management of university education in Nigeria.

The main functions of the Commission are as follows:

  1. Granting approval for all academic programmes run in Nigerian universities;
  2. Granting approval for the establishment of all higher educational institutions offering degree programmes in Nigerian universities;
  3. Ensure quality assurance of all academic programmes offered in Nigerian universities; and
  4. Channel for all external support to the Nigerian universities.

The Commission has six departments; Department of Academic Standards, Department of Inspection and Monitoring, Department of Management Support Services, Department of Students Support Services, Department of Research and Innovations and the Executive Secretary's Office. Each of the departments is headed by a Director.

The Commission has recorded significant successes since its inception. These can be attributed to quality of leadership, dedication and commitment of the staff, the quality of its Board members, cooperation received from Universities and support from the Federal Government.

As a coordinating body, the Commission ensures it discharges its responsibilities by recruiting adequate and relevant man power and appeals to the Universities for their sustained support and understanding. The Commission also relies on support from the Federal Government, State Governments and other stakeholders in its bid to improve on the quality of tertiary education and graduates of the nation's university system.

NON-AVAILABILITY OF EXPRESS SERVICE FOR PASSPORT RE-ISSUE AT THE HIGH COMMISSION OF NIGERIA, LONDON


     The attention of the High Commission has been drawn to the exploitation of Nigerians by unscrupulous individuals who offered to facilitate issuance of passports within 24 hours on payment of between Two Hundred and Fifty Pounds (£250.00) and Three Hundred Pounds (£300.00) as official fee for 'Express or Expedite Service'.

2.     For the avoidance of doubt, the High Commission wishes to restate that there is neither Express Service nor applicable fee for such non-existence service. However, the High Commission will continue to issue passports with minimum delay and in cases of genuine urgent need for passports to be obtained within 24 hours, it will be issued at no extra charge after approval by the Head of Immigration.

3.      Consequently, Nigerians applying for passports are urged not to pay any extra fees under the guise of EXPRESS SERVICE or any other services aside from the passport fees already paid on-line.
