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.

Why the NYSC letter of evaluation?

In Nigeria, there are some tertiary institutions that are banned from taking part in NYSC.

It’s because they are not accredited by National University Commission (NUC) or other regulatory agency.

That’s the same way some institutions operate illegally outside Nigeria. So, the NYSC management wants to fish out graduates from those fake foreign institutions.

Also, NYSC check accreditation of course or programme. This is because there are also some institutions that 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.
