Commission for University Education cautions VCs on approval of academic programmes


The ruling brought an end to a long-running battle between the commission and several professional associations which demanded that they should be given authority to supervise various university courses.

Ntarangwi has cautioned VCs not to breach the court decision.

“Any university engaging anybody, as far as the accreditation, licensing and recognition of university education (including accreditation/approval of academic programmes) not within an agreed framework with the commission, the commission will decline to accredit/approve such programmes if the same is yet to be accredited/approved,” said Ntarangwi.
