Senate insists on maximum duration for award of degree
Senate at its 51st statutory meeting of Wednesday 27th June, 2012 reiterated that the maximum allowable duration for the award of a Bachelors degree is six years for full-time (of four years duration)[or seven years for part-time programme (of normal five years duration)].
