Nigeria Polytechnics with Accredited Online ND and HND Programs (ODFEL)

A polytechnic is a college or institution of higher learning leading to the award of a national diploma (ND) or a higher national diploma (HND). 

There are some individuals who love to pursue their career and further their education, but due to the nature of their work, they cannot be physically available to attend lectures and carry out necessary academic activities like full-time students do. This is the advantage of the online ND and HND programs, which enable students to study at their convenience right from the comfort of their homes.

Open, distance, flexible, and e-learning ND and HND program is known as ODFEL, and only a few polytechnics are accredited to run this programme.

The online ND/HND program is for working-class students, civil servants, and individuals with busy schedules. 

Lectures are held online with the necessary materials, while examinations are carried out physically, meaning you don’t have to set foot on campus except during examinations and during registration formalities that require the signing of documents.

The Nigeria Polytechnics with Accredited Online ND and HND Programs are:

1. YABATECH.

The National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) has granted approval to Yaba College of Technology, Lagos State, to commence open, distance, flexible, and e-learning.

It eliminates the traditional barriers and increases access to the acquisition of knowledge by allowing flexibility in the choice of time, pace, and place of learning. 

The approval covers all the accredited programs at the college, but the programs will commence in phases. There will be an interactive online learning platform with tools and resources to support the learners and enhance education delivery management. All the practical sessions and examinations shall be conducted in the traditional face-to-face mode.

The above-stated courses are the accredited ND and HND online programs you can study at Yabatech. You will get the same certificate as the full-time students. The only difference is school fees and teaching mode.
