The University of Ibadan Distance Learning Centre (UIDLC) is an arm of the University responsible for providing Open and Distance Learning University Education. This mode of education is technology-mediated and provides for minimum physical interaction between the learners and the facilitators. DLC learners are spread across different locations within and outside the country because of the convenience of access which is made available by this mode.
It is noteworthy to further inform prospective candidates that the academic activities of UIDLC are facilitated by the same lecturers as the regular mode of study. The issuance of the same certificates as obtainable in the conventional university system is also assured. This is technically referred to as PARITY OF ESTEEM- both categories have equal rights and privileges.
At the moment, the Centre has six academic programmes which are fully accredited by the National University Commission (NUC). The Centre is assiduously working towards having four new programmes and five revalidated programmes. This would be in addition to the existing six programmes. These new programmes include: (1) Nursing, (2) Computer Science, (3) Sociology (4) History and Diplomatic Studies. While the old programmes which revalidation are being sought are: (1) Guidance and Counselling, (2) Educational Management (3) Library Information and Archival Studies (4) Adult Education, and (5) Statistics.
NOTICE: It is advisable for prospective candidates to carefully study the admission requirements before making payment for the form, as application that does not meet the requirements will not be accepted by the admission portal.
