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 runs for the rest six months of the year. New students are absorbed in both semesters.

 Below is the official NOUN Academic Calendar.

    ReplyDelete

    1. There are no lecture per say but there is tutorial called facilitation and it is not compulsory. The thing is, you will get a book (course material) for every course you register with that you can study at your own pace. The school is flexible but require hard work because you will have to read, read, and read in other to excel and by so doing you will eventually become self-sufficient.
