NOUN DURATION / CALENDAR

NOUN Academic Duration.

 In NOUN academic duration is calculated in semesters rather than sessions, though two semesters make a session but depends on an individual. In NOUN an individual can decide to run a semester per year that is, a session in two years may be due to financial constraint (that is where flexibility comes in). 

Most NOUN academic disciplines are four years and can be run in a maximum of eight years.

Law program is five years, a maximum of ten years the same is applicable to every other five years programs.

Postgraduate programs are three semesters (18 months).
  

The first semester usually starts from January to June while the second semester run for the rest six months of the year. New students are absorbed in both semesters.

 Below is the official NOUN Academic Calendar.

  2. Good day Admin,

    My degree result is not yet available but i have ICAN membership Certificate (ACA). Can I apply for MBA with just the ACA certificate and would I be granted admission based on that?

    1. If you have the statement of the result of your degree you are good to go.

      Delete
    2. I do not have the statement of result. Can i apply with only ACA?

      Delete
    3. To the best of knowledge statement of result is not hard to get. Since ACA is not a degree certificate I don't think it will be accepted. You can make inquiry from the study center nearest to you.

  5. I have someone running MPA.. She has just two courses to do in this semester which is her third semester and wanted to register for her project alongside but someone in Admin said she can only do project at the fourth semester meaning the programs must complete two years even when she has no any course to write again.. What is your take on this Sir!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. My take is that she should go ahead and register the project. Registering it may not stop her from completing the four years but it will save her some cost. She can do without letting them know. She should print it separately.

  6. you said it is possible to round up postgraduate programmes in two semesters? from my registrable courses,no electives in first semester.Now i have registered all my remaining compulsory courses amounting to 24units with project. is it possible to graduate without elective in msc bus admn?

  7. good day Admin.

    i have been offered provisional admission. it states that it expires on 22nd of feb. if i didnt pay all, will it affect my admission

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. All you first have to do is go for clearance. In the process, you will be given matric number thereafter you can proceed to payment of tuition. But if u could not beat the deadline your admission will still remain intact till subsequent semesters after clearance,

      If you fail to go for clearance and it expires it means you have forfeited the admission fee and you will repay next time you are re-applying. So kindly hurry up and do your clearance right away!

  15. Please I just applied,how do I read my materials as to knowing what will be brought out in examination. I enrolled for pgde. Please brief me about this
    course

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Go to the library of your study center and ask for past questions. Look for the recent ones, say between 2014 and 2018 questions. Make sure you get at least 3 for each course. Now when you get home go through them and mark the questions that are common. It does not necessarily have to be verbatim as two or more questions may be in different wording but mean the same thing. Just pay attention to what is being asked and not the words. Now all you need to do is to make the common questions your area of concentration (AOC).

      Please do not rely solely on this because it sometimes fails. Sometimes out of five two or one may come out but most times it helps a lot.
