Government Statement

The National Universities Commission (NUC) has granted the Rivers State University (RSU) approval to undertake full-time undergraduate programmes from the 2019/2020 Academic Session in Medicine and Surgery (MBBS) and Nursing Science, BNsc.

The approval came after a successful resource assessment of the College of Medical Sciences, Teaching Hospital and the Department of Nursing Sciences in November last year.
