NUC finally approves NDA postgraduate programmes

The NDA Postgraduate School was established in 2005. However, sometime last year, the NUC had directed NDA to close down all PG programmes in the school for lack of formal approval from the Commission. The decision was in line with the Commission’s new policy on PG programmes in all universities, which entails resource verification.

Subsequently, NDA hosted the NUC resource verification  team from 23 – 24 August 2012 . The result of the verification exercise showed an overwhelming percentage pass for all departments running postgraduate programmes. Meanwhile, the PG programmes in NDA have been re-focused with emphasis on defence and strategic needs of the nation. The list of NUC-approved PG courses include the following:
