BUK Programs Get International Accreditation

  BUKdaily       Saturday, September 14, 2019

French High Council for Evaluation of Research and Higher Education (HCERES) has granted a five-year unreserved international accreditation status on two programmes of the Centre for Dryland Agriculture (CDA), Bayero University, Kano (BUK). The two programmes have satisfied all the requirements and accreditation standards set aside by the body.

This came after a rigorous evaluation process involving self-evaluation, desk reviews, and an on-site visit.

The Programs accredited are MSc Natural Resource Management and Climate change and MSc Agronomy (Crops and Cropping Systems in Drylands). The MSc Natural Resource Management and Climate Change program is housed in the Department of Geography, while the MSc Agronomy (Crop and Cropping Systems in Drylands) is domiciled in the Department of Agronomy.

It could be recalled that the HCERES team visited BUK on Tuesday, July 2nd, 2019, to evaluate the records of the programs, inspected teaching and research facilities, and interacted with staff, students, alumni, and industry partners related to the programs.The President of HCERES, Michel COSNARD, who communicated the board's decision Bayero University on 10 September, 2019 said that considering the accreditation criteria analysis, five year unreserved accreditation status had been granted to each of the two programmes.

The communication, however, draws the attention of the University to the various recommendations made by the committee of experts in its evaluation report, which include the need to increase the contribution of the industrial partners in the core courses; improve on the monitoring of the students' progress during research-dissertation phase to fix temporal objectives, and reduce the too long time until graduation.

It was also advised to improve the current graduate tracking systems by creating a formalized system. The French body evaluated aims of the study programmes, position of the programmes, teaching structure and study management in which the two programmes fulfilled all the accreditation criteria.

HCERES is a French public service agency responsible for the periodic evaluation of higher education institutions, research organisations, scientific cooperation foundations, the national research agency and research units at the request of the institutions to which they belong.
