The University of Nigeria organises an orientation programme for the new students. Orientation programme is the first exposure of fresh students to social and academic life both within and outside the University. It is a period within which students are introduced to the various activities on the mode of study that they will be exposed to in the course of their academic programme.
The orientation programme affords students the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the rules, regulations and procedures of the university. During the orientation students would be thought on how to use the Learning Management System and how to interact with their tutors online as well as accessing the various forms of course materials.
During the orientation, students would be able to meet the officers of the University as well as the Centre. They are introduced to various facilities in the University such as library, Learner support offices, Heath centre, etc.
This programme affords the new students an opportunity to get acclimatised with the rules, regulations, procedures, activities and facilities of the University of Nigeria and the route to their programme. This programme offers the students the opportunity to learn what should help them and avoid mistakes.
