WELCOME TO DISTANCE LEARNING CENTRE, UNIVERSITY OF IBADAN
The idea of distance education was conceived by the Department of Adult Education of the University of Ibadan in 1972. The proposal for the commencement of the various programmes was presented to the Senate of the University in 1976. Later, the National Universities Commission also gave its approval on the condition that it would be a self-financing programme. Hence, the present-day Distance Learning programme started first as External Degrees and later changed to External Studies programme of the Department of Adult Education in 1988, with courses from the parent department (Adult Education) and two other departments, Guidance and Counseling and Teacher Education.
