BRIEF HISTORY OF OBAFEMI AWOLOWO UNIVERSITY, ILE-IFE SANDWICH DEGREE PROGRAMME IN AFFILIATION WITH THE COLLEGE OF EDUCATION, IKERE-EKITI.
The OAU sandwich degree programme of the College started in 2012 with eighteen (18) courses. Admission was sought for each of the courses with a total number of one hundred and twenty two (122) students on roll.
The first contact lectures commenced and ran through 2012 April (Easter)and August vacations. Examination was slated for December Christmas vacation before NUC clamped down on the running of outreach/satellite centers of any University. Since then, the programme had found it illegal to bring in the students on enrollment for any contact session.Hence, a break in the academic programme.
On 12th September 2014, the senate of Obafemi Awolowo University Ile-ife (OAU) approved eighteen (18) courses in affiliation with the University on a full time and sandwich degree programme of the College.
The approval was with immediate effect. The programme is on-going with the enrollment of students.
