How to Apply for NBTE Approved One-year Conversion Programme for HND to BSc

following are the simple steps to apply for the programme…


The National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) has recently unveiled an online top-up programme for Higher National Diploma (HND) holders to convert their certification to Bachelor’s Degree through online top-up for one year, with foreign accredited universities.


The board disclosed this in a statement made available to newsmen in Abuja on Monday by its Head of Media Unit, Mrs Fatima Abubakar.


Abubakar said this was also to facilitate the progression of HND holders to higher degrees.


“Attempts in the past to get the National Universities Commission to approve a two-year Master of Technology for HND holders in some polytechnics did not see the light of the day.


“Many times, HND Holders are forced to go for a one-year Postgraduate Diploma before they could be admitted into the Master’s Program in Universities.


“The disadvantage of the PGD is that holders who continue to do PhD and wish to migrate to a Nigerian University will always be queried to produce their first degree, even when they have doctorates.


“To end this unwarranted prejudice, NBTE has now created this progression pathway for HND holders.”


Based on this amazing approval of NBTE, the dichotomies in HND and BSc may find a less expression but may not necessarily require a soft landing.


While affected HND students may be happy on the other hand to do their conversion and balance up with their peers, it is still not the same as the existing demands of stakeholders which cut across issuance of BSc certificate for HND students instead of their HND certification.


However, following are the simple steps to apply for the programme:

    out there that I’m completely confused .. Any suggestions?
