Top 15 Courses That No Longer Exist In Nigerian Polytechnics

The Federal Government has announced that any programme that is not technical will be out of the polytechnics. The decision to scrap the degree was reached on Wednesday, June 6, 2018, at the Federal Executive Council, FEC meeting.  The FG did not only stop polytechnics from awarding HND degree, it also stops them from offering courses that are non-technical.

With this new policy, we have put together some of the non-technical courses that are being offered in Nigerian polytechnics.  These following 15 courses will no longer Exist to be studied in Nigerian Polytechnics once the new policy takes effects.

1. Business Administration

2. Banking and Finance

3. Secretariat studies

4. Accounting

5. Hospitality Management

6. Public Administration

7. Estate Management

8. Fine Art

9. Home and Rural Economics

10. Insurance

11. Marketing

12. Nutrition And Dietetics

13. Wildlife And Eco-Tourism

14. Fishery

15. Leisure And Tourism Management.

Nigerian students currently studying these courses at ND level will probably not be allowed to study them at HND level as the Minister also announced that there will be no fresh admission for HND programmes.

However, in order to kick-start the policy, Yaba College of Technology will now be known as City University of Technology, Yaba, while Kaduna Polytechnic will be known as City University of Technology, Kaduna.
