As a former Pro-Chancellor, University of Lagos, and as the best Pro-Chancellor in Nigeria for two consecutive years, I saw with my own eyes the decay in the nation’s university system, the poor delivery of quality education and the non existence of teaching and learning facilities. Also, I am concerned with the large number of applicants denied admission to universities each year.
The need therefore arises not only to widen access to tertiary education but also improve on the quality of university intake. All these put together, I felt the strong need to bring a new thought by a dynamic and practical approach to change the face of university education delivery.
With God on my side who has always made the impossibility possible, I launched Afe Babalola University in 2009. The University opened with three pioneering colleges but now has five colleges namely; College of Law, College of Social and Management Sciences, College of Sciences, College of Medical Sciences and College of Engineering with over 6000 students’ population. All the 47 programmes run by the University have full accreditation by the relevant Authorities and Professional Bodies.
In 2009 and 2010, just about the time Afe Babalola University was opened, I observed a failure rate of 74.01% and 76.64% respectively in the West African Examination Council results and wanted to do something most urgently to ameliorate the failure rate and increase access to tertiary education.
This led to the establishment of Afe Babalola International Study Centre Ibadan in 2010 as a remedial school that provides for the educational weakness and inadequacies of students who are denied admission to higher institutions. The establishment of a world class Continuing Education Centre designed to give hope to the hopeless and make tertiary education accessible to all. The Centre started with only four students in 2010 but now has enrolled almost 1000 students since inception.
I am very proud and satisfied that since the school has been established it has been part of the fulfillment of my vision and dream, the results have been speaking loud and have justified my motivation for the establishment of the school.
With the quantum of modern facilities, laboratories and qualified teachers in the Centre, Afe Babalola International Study Centre is a veritable launching pad to many students seeking admission to any university worldwide.
I therefore welcome you to Afe Babalola International Study Centre, Ibadan, the city of hope, intellectuality, excellence and quality education.
We are witnessing an age when failure rate in most public examinations are on the increase, people’s outcry getting louder each time, yet no solution to the nightmare “mass failure in public examinations”. While parents are determined to give their wards the right education, they are confused, bewildered, and asking which way forward? The recently-released UTME result had revealed that only 37% scored above 180 points.
As part of the different measures that could reduce this problem, Aare Afe Babalola, (always on his crusader trail of quality education delivery) established Afe Babalola International Study Centre (ABISC) in 2010 with the following objectives:
In order to achieve these objectives, our programmes have been thoroughly structured and the academic content of each of them adequately designed to ensure an effective learning process that can justify a judicious and successful use of the one academic session each of the programme lasts.
Within the short period of existence, Afe Babalola International Study Centre (ABISC) had impacted lives and has given hope to quite a number of students who had lost hope in university admission. Apart from recording over 95% transition rate to university across the nation each year, we mentor the performances and progress of our students in their respective universities and have discovered that at graduation some of them even make First Class degree.
Since the advent of JUPEB, over 500 students have sat and passed the prescribed examinations conducted in about 15 universities nationwide. Direct entry admission into 200Level in all Nigerian universities has been made possible and easier. Students who in the past had given up on their dreams, and who would have become drug addicts have realised that they could reclaim their lost glories through this initiative. Parents and guardians who at some point considered sending their wards overseas to access tertiary education are now finding solace at Afe Babalola International Study Centre Ibadan (ABISC) and rejoicing today.
Our mission here is to give students the opportunity to excel morally and in their academic pursuit. Afe Babalola International Study Centre is the way, the hope and the means to a brighter future
