In this article, you will learn how to get NYSC evaluation letter for foreign trained graduates.
If you’re a foreign trained graduate, the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) may require that you upload evaluation letter during online registration.
However, not every foreign graduates are asked to upload their evaluation letter, it’s for those whose their institutions’ accreditation are in doubt.
What is NYSC evaluation letter?
It’s a letter that Nigerian foreign graduates need to get from the Federal Ministry of Education. This letter shows that the institution and course they studied abroad are duly accredited by the Govt of that country.
During NYSC online registration, if you see on your dashboard something like “you have not been evaluated yet“. It means you need to upload evaluation letter.
The NYSC management has made evaluation compulsory for foreign graduates, especially those that studied in African countries.
Why the NYSC letter of evaluation?
In Nigeria, there are some tertiary institutions that are banned from taking part in NYSC. Because they are not accredited by the National University Commission (NUC) or other regulatory agency.
So, there are many other institutions operating illegally outside the shores of Nigeria. Hence, the NYSC management wants to fish out graduates from those fake foreign institutions.
Also, NYSC check accreditation of course or programme. This is because some institutions are not allowed to offer a particular course or programme.
However, the National University Commission (NUC) has cautioned Nigerians from studying in Ghana, Niger, Togo, Benin Republic, and so on. Maybe it’s because most of the institutions in those countries do not have accreditation.
During evaluation processes, the ministry of education will check the accreditation status of your institution. Make sure your institution is accredited before applying for NYSC; where in doubt it’s your responsibility to visit the federal Ministry of Education for confirmation.
When you get the NYSC evaluation letter, scan and upload it on your NYSC dashboard. It will take few weeks to reflect.
