“I believe in Distance Learning as it has afforded a lot of people a chance and pathway to attain first degree. I am one of the luckiest person on the planet today because if not for the programme my education would have stopped at Standard 6.”
“MR. MUYIWA ADEMOLA (A NOLLYWOOD STAR) GRADUATED FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF ADULT EDUCATION UNDER THE UNIVERSITY OF IBADAN DISTANCE LEARNING PROGRAM.
“The academic environment of DLC is such that humbles any student irrespective of their status in the society. My final year project was on the ‘uses of the power of home videos on community development’.
My advice to aspiring students is this, if you think education is expensive try ignorance, in this generation whoever fails to equip himself/herself for the future will be in trouble: and the key to the future is not money but knowledge”. ”
“DR. MRS. ADETOLA O. ADEYEMI CAME OUT WITH SECOND CLASS UPPER IN THE YEAR 1996 UNDER THE EXTERANL DEGREES PROGRAMME (NOW DISTANCE LEARNING CENTRE).
“Without doubt, DLC has impacted me through the diligent, intelligent and dedicated lecturers who took us through painstaking academic rigors to bring out the best in us. I want to urge all present and aspiring DLC students not to relent in their efforts to seek education. Being a Distance learning student does not make you a second-class citizen”. . ”
“I am proud to say that the Distance Learning cemter UI assisted me in making my dreams of becoming a graduate come through in the year 2006/2007 academic session.
Learning was smooth and the environment was a safe haven.”
“I am a playwright who graduated from Psychology Department, I wrote the play ‘Beyond the End’ which is now one of the literature texts in English language in Oyo state and many copies have been sold. My second published play ‘Before Night Falls’ has also been sold to numerous secondary schools and is now under consideration for at University press Limited.”
“I GRADUATED from the department of Psychology. I won a silver medal in Taekwondo at the 17th National sport festival, Garden city, Rivers state where I represented OYO. All these were possible because DLC taught me to balance and combine study and work.”
“My passing through the department of Human Kinetics under the Distance learning program has really helped me a lot. It has broadened my horizon and knowledge base.
A lot of factors contributed to my success from encouragements from my principal where I worked to me calculating my cumulative grade point average to collecting my materials on time and studying well ahead of class to setting over 300 questions for myself on each course.
I want to encourage DLC students to monitor their scored and grades at every level and read ahead of class. ”
“I dreamt of a degree programme that could assist me in coping work. The information came from a friend that the University of Ibadan DLC had expanded their degree programme to Arts, Social sciences and Agric. I grabbed the opportunity by obtaining the form and today my dream has become a reality”. DLC was very interesting from inception, in 200L I started the first last web-based SMS programme called “arts Herald” that broadcasted information to DLC faculty of arts students. In 300L I launched the first DLC Facebook page for students to socialize, exchange information, share ideas and meet for educational purposes. ”
“Mr. Adebowale graduated 2008/2009 academic session.
I thank God for the opportunity to pass through the University of Ibadan Distance learning Centre. I was a registered nurse as at the time I gained admission and I must confess that the most challenging aspect of the whole issue was combining education and work. But then the lectures that taught us contributed to my performance and success, they inspired and motivated me to start scoring high grades from my first year and build on whatever foundation I have laid till I graduate. Thus, I started scoring high grades as from my first year, and by my final year, the lowest grade I had was 60, because my life became a major triangle HOME-WORK-SCHOOL.”
