Skyline University Nigeria Gets NUC’s Approval to Run B.NSc Nursing Science and Doctor of Physiotherapy (DPT)

Kano’s First International Private varsity, Skyline University Nigeria (SUN), has received approval from the regulatory body of Nigerian Universities, the National Universities Commission (NUC) to run undergraduate Programmemes in Nursing Science and Physiotherapy, under the University’s School of Basic Medical Science, another feat in the validation of its academic Programmemes.
This was contained in a letter by the regulatory body of Nigerian Universities, dated 27th October, 2021. According to the letter sent to the University’s Vice-Chancellor, Professor Ajith Kumar V.V, by the NUC, “I am directed to inform the Vice-Chancellor that the Executive Secretary has considered and approved the establishment of the full-time mode of the following undergraduate Programmemes to be run in the Main Campus of the University with effect from the 2021/2022 academic session”.
The approval has granted access to the University to open its doors to accept 2021/2022 applications from suitable candidates seeking to study B.NSc Nursing and Doctor of Physiotherapy at Skyline University Nigeria. It would be recalled that earlier in September, a resource verification visit to the Department of Nursing and Physiotherapy at Skyline University Nigeria was carried out by a team from the NUC, the first step to the verification process.
The resource verification visit, allowed the NUC to assess the human and material resources available in the University, a determinant to the basis of the approval for the Programmemes. This also gives momentum to the university’s vision to be an internationally recognized institution of excellence in higher education, by providing a technologically enabled platform for innovative research and education with a focus on creativity and entrepreneurship.
Prof. Ajith while giving a statement on this welcome development, stated that
Skyline University Nigeria has what it takes to run the Nursing and Physiotherapy Programmemes, adding that the university would deploy adequate human and material resources and invest in the Programmemes with the license of excellence which had become the hallmark of all Programmemes running in the University.
