New Varsity Curriculum To Begin Implementation In September – NUC

The Core Curriculum Minimum Academic Standards (CCMAS), created for universities, will commence implementation in September, according to Chris Maiyaki, Acting Executive Secretary of the National Universities Commission (NUC).
The new curriculum, according to Maiyaki, will reposition Nigerian universities to be among the best in Africa, he said on Wednesday during the Stakeholders’ Colloquium on CCMAS in Abuja.
“The reviewed curriculum is endowed with unique features tailored to meet the evolving demands of the rapidly changing world. It emphasises interdisciplinary learning, soft and critical skills development, entrepreneurship and value creation,” he said.
Prof. Tahir Mamman, the minister of education, urged institutions to utilize the 30% university senate’s contribution to the fullest and make sure that learning outcomes and skills are achieved regardless of the main discipline.
The minister, who was represented by Permanent Secretary David Adejo, said that the skills must be easily transferable to the academic environment, the country as a whole, and the global community in particular.
He said that the CCMAS contained 70% of the entire curriculum and that universities’ senates were given responsibility for 30% of it in order to incorporate the distinctive characteristics of their own universities.
