KWASU MEDICAL LABORATORY SCIENCE DEPARTMENT EIGHT YEARS OF NO ACCREDITATION, STUDENTS CRY’S OUT
MEDICAL LABORATORY SCIENCE DEPARTMENT is a department in KWARA STATE UNIVERSITY (KWASU) MALETE, ILORIN KWARA STATE with eight years of no accreditation, there are many students who are supposed to have graduated for over two years but are busy roaming the streets without a certificate to show for it.
While the management of KWARA STATE UNIVERSITY continues to collect money from the students (a tuition fee of N210,000 for non -indigene and N110,000 for indigene, 65% of the students are non – indigene) they have failed in their responsibility to provide adequate lecturers and facility for the students.
Accreditation being criteria for graduation and certification as MEDICAL LABORATORY SCIENCE graduates still appears far from the reach of the institution.
To prevent misplace of focus, the following are the short comings of the institution:
- The department does not have National universities commission (NUC) and Medical laboratory science council of Nigeria (MLSCN) accreditation.
2.That the department has only two permanent lecturers.
- That the department is being run out of a single room.
- That the department has no single class room to itself.
5.That there are two sets of students who ought to have graduated and either be on youth service or internship but are at home, being a liability and an eye score to their loved ones.
While so many appeal has been made by both students of this department and their SPONSORS & FAMILY to the school to no effect, the students and parents have come to the realisation that the foundation is the problem and there is no ray of light from deep down the tunnel.
It seems the only viable option is that these students be sourced to other institutions running MEDICAL LABORATORY SCIENCE PROGRAM to continue their education.
