UNIVERSITY'S SUB-AFFILIATES: -REASONS WHY SOME GRADUATES DON'T RECEIVE THEIR DEGREES AFTER GRADUATION
Wednesday 12 October 2022
Some institutions are engaged in the Conversion/Validation of professional Certificates, Diplomas and Degrees through assessment and evaluation of the academic and professional standard and through affiliation with tertiary institutions such as universities and polytechnics whose credentials are awarded by Private Companies and institutions (eg. Computer Training Centers, Engineering works, Nurse/Mid-Wifery, Security Training, Skills Acquisition Training and other Skills acquired which combined PRACTICAL and THEORY) without tertiary institution's Affiliation as the Skilled Workers are not recognized to be at the same level with those sat for professional exams and in the tertiary institutions; but the University's Affiliation makes the difference as the THEORETICALLY ORIENTED AWARD through the distance learning programme as implied in accordance with UNESCO rules (based on Accreditation on Prior Learning and Experience Awards) without further academic work requirement but rather concur and validate the previous Certificate/Diploma's THEORETICAL AND PRACTICAL PERSPECTIVE as Dual/Reciprocal awards, considered as equivalent in accordance with UNESCO rules.
Based on the fact that there is no skill without theory including Capentry work which is studied in most Comprehensive Secondary Schools and colleges and the theoretical aspect of the skill could be studied through distance learning programme as work book.
Therefore, any skill you acquired which you put in writing becomes the theory which could be studied through distance learning programme except the practical aspect which produce the theory. So practical and theory are one because the theory is combined with the practical.
Based on this development, if someone who had never being to school but produces a product seen to be very useful, but uses his native dialect to explain how he does it; while another person translates into English becomes a theory for us to study in the Colleges and universities and pass the exam to earn our Diplomas and Degrees with First Class and 2nd Class Honours.
But the question is, "What qualification do you award to the illiterate producer who cannot read or write in English before you come to earn your Diplomas and Degrees from his or her own theory.
This is where UNESCO comes in to endorse the Accreditation of prior Learning and Experimental awards which is binding on all member nations world-wide as the professional skills of the illiterate individual become his academic equivalence to be awarded either Diploma or Degree without classroom academic work attachment because the practical exams based on trial and errors using his energy, time and money spent for research in order to produce the product, is far more rigorous than the academic exams to be written in the classroom which is based on the illitrate producer's theory
Therefore, becomes academically qualified for a Diploma or Degree award without academic work attachement based on UNESCO'S. rules.
This is based on the fact that most inventions we enjoy such as television, telephone, cars and several others were invented and improved by individuals in the Advanced countries who cannot read or write and speak good English rather in their own native dialect and writings such as Germany, France, China, Japan, Spain etc. Most of their inventions were not studied in the Classrooms rather through years of individual's research work to produce them and are awarded Diplomas and Degrees based on their practical experience which UNESCO endorsed.
When they put them in writing in their own language and translate them into English it then becomes a theory for us to study in our colleges and universities to be awarded Diplomas and Degrees. In most advanced countries, you must study their own language at least for one year in the University during your studies abroad. So is the practical skill that matters and not the English Grammar that belong to the British.

We have reports from several students who had enrolled in distance learning programme with other tertiary institutions but could not get their Degree Certificates after graduation due to the problem associated with Sub-Affiliates as sometimes school fees paid by the students do not get into the hands of the University's officials as the fee paid was to be transferred from the first Agent to the second agent before it reaches the university's officials; along the line, one of them may fail to transfer payment either to the next agent or to the university's officials and student cannot communicate with the university officials directly unless through their Agents quite unlike Delcan Distance Learning Consult and the European-American University's Direct Affiliation.
Against this background, names of those who had concluded Degree programme are published on the university's website in view of the fact that if a student receives a Degree Certificate from any of her Affiliated Campuses in Nigeria, but his or her name is not published on her website then it suggests that, the Degree awarded is fake and the fees paid by the student was not received by the European-American University's officials abroad at the conclusion of his or her Degree programme.
This type of report is more synonymous with Nigerian universities Affilation with indigenous institutions involving third party Agents because most Nigerians are very eager to earn Nigerian University Degrees and falling prey to third party Agents; therefore, victims would discourage others for involvement in distance learning programmes because of their experience. This cause a great setback in distance learning involving degree programme.
This is based on the fact that, it is very easy to find out the authenticity of the Degree awarded from the Nigerian institutions as students can easily visit their main Campuses for verification of the award; so Agents are afraid to forge Nigerian Degree Certificates in case of payment default quite unlike in the foreign country due to distance factor except names of Graduates of foreign universities are published on their website for references to be verified by Employers and institutions online.
Based on this development, some students enrolled in Nigerian institutions distance learning programmes do not receive their Degree Certificates in case of payment default by any of their Coordinators; while foreign university Degree is synonymous with duplicated forgery due to distance factor unless names of Graduates are published on their website for references which serve as payment evidence for Degree programme and also safeguide against forgery of foreign Degree Certificates.
We do however, grant exemptions to such students by awarding either Ordinary or Advanced Diplomas depending on the years of study involved if he or she can produce verifiable documentry evidence as proof of enrollment of previous tertiary institution provided the course involved is not pure science or any other course that could not be studied through distance learning programme except at the main Campus; alternatively, it could be exchanged for any Arts and Management course within the course outline of the previous institution attended.
Students who obtained either our Advanced Diploma or from any other tertiary institution considered as equivalent, could enrol for Bachelor Degree programme for One year and Six Months.
Those who had WAEC/GCE "O' Level or equivalent, should enrol for Ordinary and Advanced Diploma before proceed to Bachelor Degree as to minimize dropped-out in Degree programme.
Those who had Bachelor Degree from any recognized tertiary institution, should proceed to Master on the same or similar course. But a different course requires our Professional Post Graduate Diploma before proceed to Master Degree enrollment.
The same rule applies to those who dropped out of school with considerable number of years of study.
There is no Legal implication regarding Conversion/validation of Certificates at any level; rather it legally conforms to the "Accreditation of Prior Learning and Previous Experience Awards" as endorsed by UNESCO as detailed on the European-American University website and OXCEL "Legal" website.

Most people who are not familiar with online engagement cannot distinguish between Yahoo Boys and professional Freelancers. These Freelancers also known as Remote Works are paid by foreign firms either on successful completion of job assignment or placed on a monthly salary basis.
Some are engaged on part or full-time basis depending on the nature of assignment, while some are working as Commission Agents like us.
Those who are ignorant of this type of engagement would regard them as "Yahoo Boys" too based on the fact that they do not leave their houses in the morning and going to work to return in the evening and do not have office apartment to show up but are living a very comfortable lifestyle that attracks suspicion, jealousy and enviness within their neighborhood who would identify them as "Yahoo Boys" as online transaction looks very strange to many people like the POS transactions outside the banking hall as an innovation in the banking industry.
Their job activities are carried out online using their Laptops, Android phones and Desk Top computers depending on the nature of job assignment.
If interrogated by Security Agents based on suspicion, they can reveal the overseas company they are working for and the online platform they registered to secure the job and other verifiable information regarding their online engagement.
Also, if it is a business entity, they can reveal every verifiable legal documents such as business registration Certificate and including the foreign firm or institution for verification through the Nigerian Embassy Officials in their country of origin as to ensure a legitimate business engagement.
But that is not the case with the Yahoo Boys who keep their identity secret for fear of being arrested by Security Agents. They operate in different forms with their computers as well use for scamming; but the most common among them is by indicating huge amount of money as a bait to collect the little you have and from several others. Sometimes, use Agents who go about collecting money from others with the promise that the millions are coming and very soon you will be rich enough to come out of poverty and also spread similar messages via SMS, WhatsApp and email.
They do not have specific product or service to offer as that would require official registration requirement from the Government. So they do their best to break every Government protocol as to hide their identity in carrying out their fraudulent activities.
Sometimes they call you on phone to collect your bank details to empty your bank account pretending to be your bank officer. They use several methods to carry on their fradulent activities under the vail of secrecy quite unlike the online professional Freelancers and as Remote Workers who never hide their identity.

Criticism from Dropped-out students is one of the big chailleges we face in the distance learning programme due to inability to pay school fees.
This is not for the private distance learning institutions alone but including the private Primary and Secondary School as well.
The basic issue regarding ths crictism is the inability to pay school fees and dropped out and then go about scandalizing the name of the school as fake in case of distance learning programme or the teachers are not performing well in case of Priviate Primary and Secondary Schools.
Such scandal is very rare by School dropped-out in Public Government schools like in the Universities and Polytechnics.
For example, parent send their child to school "A" as a private school and withdraw the child to school "B" after failing to pay school fees and then would go about criticizing all the teachers in school "A" that they are not performing well and later withdraw from school "B" to public Government school as could not afford to pay school fees with all the debts incurred from school "A" to "B" and including all the blame poured on the teachers for not performing well but conseal the debts incurred.
Classroom Lecturers in distance learning programme has this disadvantage of being scandalized quite unlike home based students. The classroom student is seen going out for lecture and when he or she stops attending due to none payment of accumulated school fees start going about scandalizing the name of the school as fake to discourage others from enrollment in order to take away his or her shame but conseal the debts incurred but cannot scandalized public school for example if he or she dropped out from the university due to some financial challenges.
But that is not the case with the home based student who study in the privacy of his or her home. No body ask question about the school since no body see him or her attending lectures.
So home based study protects both the image of the school and the student untill graduation and even though he or she dropped out of school due to unavoidable circumstances.

In the advancement of computer/internet technology, Classroom Lecturers are gradually phasing out in the academic fields alongside with the campus based traditional Universities and including other tertiary institutions.
Aside from Engineering, pure science and other technical subjects, any Arts and Management course could be studied online without Classroom attendance.
Most students would like to see the Lecturer in the classroom to ask questions for explaination on the subject matter; but such questions with their answers are already available online. Based on the fact that other students studying online had asked that same or similar questions and got answers from several websites through Google search results.
Consequently, the online Lecturers are finding it very difficult to set exam questions that are not available with answers online.
This automatically eliminate the use of the classroom Lecturers who could only give limited answers to questions while the online students who ask the same or similar question gets enough answers from several sources through Google search results which enable the students acquire more knowledge on the subject matter quite unlike the Classroom students.
Classroom students are definitely not allowed to get into the Exam Hall with mobile phones and course material unlike the online students who study and write their exams in the comfort of their homes without any Lecturer watching over them in order to safeguard against examination malpractices like in the case of the classroom students.
Although, setting the exam questions very from one institution to another depending on the individual examination setting format and program involved.
Some use objective questions format online whose answers are giving ranging from letter A - E for students to tick the right answers to the questions within a given time frame. In most cases, students only guess and tick answers regardless of whether the answers are right or wrong.
This kind of objective question and answer do not necessarily prove the individual's understanding of the subject matter even though he or she ticks the right answer to the objective question, because Fifty Percent of the correct answers are based on guess work.
Therefore, the essay writing type of questions and answers is mostly prefered to enable the students write the answers based on the understanding of the subject matter and not based on guess work.
Based on this development, it is a very big challenge to the online Lecturer to set questions that are quite related to the subject matter whose answers cannot not be easily Google out from the internet.
The question must be framed from the content of the course material and the students are required to give Essay writing type of answers independently as it relates to courses material's content.
Consequently, most Lecturers without such skills of setting online essay writing type of questions cannot go online as students could easily Google out answers and send back to him or her for making.
The Lecurer could be good at setting question in Classroom that would require essay writing and restrict students from getting into the exam hall with mobile phones and study material based on the fact that some questions could easily be Google out from the internet with enough answers.
Based on this development, most students studying online do write essay type of answers that are related to the content of the study material and become more intelligent in expressing their views in public places and at the place of work because of the training they had gone through quite unlike some of their counterparts from the classrooms.
Evidently, the Director of Delcan Distance Learning Consult is endowed with such skills of setting online exams based on the course material content that could not be easily Google out from the internet like other online professionals.
Delcan Distance Learning Consult (Division of G. Delcan International Services ) is a direct Affiliate of the European-American University with African Regional Headquarters in Uganda East Africa listed among the Affiliated Campus in Nigeria on the University's website.
We provide Lecture material/handouts and set questions in an essay writing format on any Subject depending on the Course involved to enable students provide essay writing type of answers on the subject matter independently without paraphrasing from course material or cramming and from the internet.
Students are interested in writing such exam by expressing their individual views on the subject matter independently and through carring out research which compliment the content of the course material/handout as a professional.
Our Students are prepared to express their views independently and with boldness because of the training they had acquired.
We award Diplomas under the University's affiliation since 2017. The University awards both academic and Honorary Doctorate Degree. Our Lecture material are offered online and offline. Fees are very competitive.
We provide list of registered students on our website for reference purposes and to be verified by employers and other organizations.

Reciprocal Agreement among tertiary institutions had been endorsed by UNESCO as a means of fostering cooperation among academic institutions of higher learning around the world. Under the scheme, a student in level 200 can seek for credit transfer to another institution either in the same or foreign country and be admitted at the same level. (You may google out reciprocal Agreement among tertiary institutions for more details).
In that case, it would resort to Dual Degree also known as Reciprocal Degree award; that means, a Graduate with a university degree from one school could as well be awarded another Degree of the other school on admission either on the same or another course as equivalent based on the reciprocal agreement between the two institutions.
Similarly, the European-American University had entered into Validation Agreement (also known as Reciprocal Agreement) with universities in several Latin American countries and around the World including the United States of America for Dual Degree awards and for the global recognition of her Degree programme. (See “Recognition” on her website for more details). In Nigeria, there are also Nigerian universities affiliated to several foreign universities based on Reciprocal Agreement. It makes it easy for student who had a Bachelor Degree in Nigeria to begin his or her Master Degree programme in a foreign country of the partner institution. (You may google for the list of foreign affiliated universities in Nigeria).
Based on this development, students are prepared based on the Curriculum agreed by the two parties prior to the admission overseas. Outside the reciprocal agreement, the Bachelor Degree may be downgraded to an ordinary Diploma level overseas due to academic standard differences between the two countries.
Consequently, the student would start all over to read and pass his or her exams in order to be qualified for the Bachelor Degree award of that country’s standard.
