Some admission seekers are asking whether Adeyemi College of Education is a University or a College. Some want to know if the college runs just NCE or Degree inclusive. Some are curious to know whether it’s a federal-owned or state-managed institution.

In short, there a series of confusion about the school. This post will help you find the right answers to the questions above and a few others more.

Let’s take it from the real question. Adeyemi is a two-in-one higher institution. The institution runs both degree and NCE programmes. However, the NCE is solely administered by the college while the degree is in affiliation with Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife.

In brief, Adeyemi College of Education is a federal government higher education institution located in Ondo City, Ondo State. It is affiliated to Obafemi Awolowo University for its degree programmes.

The federal government of Nigeria under the Goodluck Jonathan presidency upgraded the College to a full-fledged university of education in May 2015. However, the new administration of President Mohammed Buhari decided to put the new status on hold in August 2015 because of the absence of an enabling law. The National Assembly finally passed the Adeyemi Federal University Establishment bill in December 2018 and the bill is now awaiting the assent of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (as of late 2019).

ADEYEMI College of Education is Not Yet a University

The institution as earlier noted is yet to be fully upgraded to a university. When this happens, the name will be updated to “Adeyemi University of Education”. In the meantime, the college’s degree programme is owned by Obafemi Awolowo University Ile-Ife.

As you might have already known, Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) degrees/programmes are well recognized not only in Nigeria but also abroad. The same is applicable to her degree programmes in any of the affiliates. See the list of universities approved for affiliate degree programmes in Nigeria.

In the same vein, it’s the university that’s responsible for all the administrative and academic activities of the attendees.

Will I Go for NYSC After Adeyemi Degree?

Yes, you will.

Obafemi Awolowo University is in charge of mobilizing her graduates for National Service. This is why during NYSC registration, her graduates register under OAU instead of ADEYEMI College.

I detailed this in my post, “Can I Serve at NYSC if I Attend Affiliate Campus Programme?“.

How Do I Choose Adeyemi Degree in JAMB?

During JAMB registration, candidates can consider Adeyemi Degree (as affiliated with OAU) under the degree category (like other universities). It will appear as “Adeyemi College of Education, Ondo (affl. with OAU Ile-Ife)”.

If you want to consider the College NCE programme instead, it will appear under the NCE category as “Adeyemi College of Education, Ondo”.

During the post UTME however, candidates will use the same platform for their registrations. But you’re opened with options to choose between Degree and NCE. This is the way the college will know which one you want to be considered for. The JAMB cut-off mark for their post UTME is usually; Degree 180 and above and NCE a minimum of 140.

Duration of Programmes/Courses of Studies

For the degree courses, candidates spend 4 years. For the NCE, 3 years.

In most cases, NCE graduates from the college usually chose to continue their studies to the degree level at the college. However, they can continue their degree at other universities across the country if they choose.

Such candidates will have to obtain the JAMB direct entry form and consider any university of their interests while filling the forms.
