NOUN is the University for You - The National Open University of Nigeria is an Open Distance Learning (ODL) institution in Nigeria renowned for providing functional, flexible, accessible, cost-effective education adequate for flourishing in the 21st  century and beyond. Right from our first inception in July 1983, NOUN mandate has remained to deliver university education at the doorstep of every interested  Nigerian.


It is important that you know that the founding president,  Alhaji Shehu Shagari, the first executive president of Nigeria, envisioned a university with the capacity to admit and meet the education and skill needs of citizens no matter their status and circumstances. This vision was predicated on the realization that  a sustainable democracy, functional economy,   happy  and prosperous people,  all  depend  on knowledgeable citizens. Meeting the educational needs of such citizens in a highly populous country like' Nigeria was beyond the capacity of Nigeria's conventional higher institutions.


Notwithstanding the suspension of NOUN president in 1984 by the Federal Military Government that succeeded Alhaji Shehu Shagari, the resuscitation of NOUN in 2002 by the civilian regime of Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, went side by side with the awakening of the vision that informed the initial establishment of the university. As a faithful trustee of the Nigerian people, NOUN leverages on Information and Computer Technologies to deliver  an education tailored  towards  the globalised  economy. The University offers  exceptional academic programmes  that  meet  the specific needs of all sectors of the global economy, in the Arts; Health; Law; Physical, Social, Agricultural and Management Sciences.


As an Open Distance Learning (ODL) institution, we are an equal opportunity university determined to meet the following objectives that necessitated the establishment of open and distance education in Nigeria:

  1. Provision of Education for All and promotion of lifelong learning
  2. Filling the gap created by the closure of outreaches/satellite campuses
  3. Cost effectiveness
  4. Improved economies of scale
  5. Flexibility of delivery system
  6. Maximum utilization of academic personnel
  7. On the job teacher training
  8. Poverty eradication, vocational and lifelong education
  9. Provision of non-formal education
  10. Reaching the un-reached
  11. Propagation of national orientation
