Kings University in Ode-Omu, Osun state, has secured the approval of the National Universities Commission (NUC) to commence four new academic programmes effective from the 2020/2021 academic session.
Oluwadare Adebisi, the varsity’s public relations officer, broke the news in a statement to TheCable Lifestyle on Wednesday.
The four approved programmes are mass communication, criminology and security studies, entrepreneurship as well as cybersecurity.
The varsity’s spokesman said the approval was contained in a letter signed by N.B Saliu, NUC’s director of academic planning on behalf of the commission’s executive secretary.
Adebisi said the approval followed the successful resource verification visit of the commission to the university in December 2020.
Commenting on the development, Adenike Kuku, the institution’s vice-chancellor, hailed the approval of the programmes presented to the NUC.
Kuku said the approval was a demonstration of the varsity’s expansion drive as well as compliance to the NUC regulatory processes.
The institution called on qualified and interested candidates to apply for any of the new programmes or the existing ones by visiting its website.
Kings University is owned by Matthew Ashimolowo, senior pastor of Kingsway International Christian Centre (KICC) in London.
