Students’ Rushing For Nursing Science At Anchor University  – VC



The Anchor University based in Lagos has experienced an unprecedented surge in admission this session after National Universities Commission (NUC) granted the school  accreditation to run four new courses.

It would be recalled that the NUC  recently gave the school ‘a clean bill of health’, having met all the requirements for accreditation, to run the following courses: LLB Law, B.NSc Nursing Science,  BSc Architecture and BMLS, Medical Laboratory Science.

Commenting on this development, the Vice Chancellor, Professor Samuel Bandele expressed gratitude to God for being with the school since its inception till now and for the achievement made so far.

“It is unprecedented to see students in their large numbers jostling for our Nursing programme while we are still expecting the Legal Council for final visitation before we commence the Law programme. We are hopeful too that once we get the final clearance for the Law programme we shall have the same result like the Nursing programme.  

“Although, we are still admitting students into various departments particularly the new programmes. May I also state here that we can accommodate more students who are still willing to be part of history as long as they meet the basic requirements for admission.

“I must also state here that the school management has taken cognisance of the economic situation of the country and as such made the school fees affordable to parents”, he stressed.

The university don assured the new students that they would not regret choosing the school saying all the students would be supported to achieve their respective ambitions while on campus.

He reiterated that the school campus is built in a conducive environment for studying with modern facilities to aid students’ learning with ease within the campus.

Also, speaking on the progress the school has made over time, the registrar, Mr. M.O Salami corroborated the views of the vice chancellor saying Anchor university is on the path to greatness.

Salami commended the VC for his broad-based vision and positive attitude he brought in at the inception of his administration, which served as the driving force to all the staff he met on the ground when he resumed.

“So, it was not surprising that we have begun to see the manifestation in terms of admission and other aspects in the school administration”, he disclosed.

Meanwhile, Prof. Bandele used the medium to thank the Chancellor, Pastor (Dr.) William Kumuyi, whose vision led to the birth of Anchor University and his continued support to the school. 

He also commended the management team, the teaching and non-teaching staff, and the committee that worked relentlessly for the accreditation of the new programmes.
