The Elizade University, Ilara-Mokin in Ondo State has disclosed its plan to introduce postgraduate studies and distance learning programmes.
The institution said the new programmes would commence in the next academic session.
The Vice-Chancellor of the university, Prof Olukayode Amund, stated this during the eighth matriculation ceremony of the institution where no fewer than 300 newly admitted students took the admission oath.
The vice-chancellor also revealed that two new faculties had been added to the existing ones. He said, “The university hopes to kick-start the Postgraduate School, faculties of environmental design and management, pharmacy and a Distance Learning Centre by the next academic session.
“The university has continued to focus on her ambition to become a globally competitive institution that produces entrepreneurial, innovative and ethical graduates as enshrined in our vision and mission “
While addressing the new students, Amund admonished them to key into the mission and vision of the school, stressing that anti-social behaviour on the part of students will not be tolerated in the institution.
