Message from the HOD
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences, National Open University of Nigeria. This handbook is a maiden issue by the Facultyof Agricultural Sciences (FAS) which contains the rules and regualtions governing the undergraduate programmes in the Faculty. The handbook is a must for all students of the Faculty. The information contained in it are necessary for students registration, choice of course, programme planning, duration of study and other relevant information that will help the students during their stay in the National Open Unviersity of Nigeria (NOUN). It also contains a brief history of the University and the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences, the SIWES/Farm Fractical Year, Laboratory practicals, as well as Teaching and Research Farm. The handbook is therefore, necessary for all students who want to study Agricultural Sciences in the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN).
It is hoped that this document will serve as a guide to the new and stale sstudents in the Faculty. It also aimed to provide the general public hands-on information not only about the Faculty generally but specifically about all the programmes on offer in the Faculty.
It is my pleasure to therefore recommend this prospectus to all the students, the university community at large and other interested parties.
