Main Administration

  1. We noted that out of the 360 programmes running by the university, only 61 have been accredited and 190 sent to National Accreditation Board (NAB) for accreditation and reaccreditation, with 109 yet to be sent to NAB for accreditation. We recommended to Management to cease running programmes that are not accredited or having their accredited certificates expire until they are accredited or renewed, to avoid sanctions by NAB.
