Welcome to the Centre for Distance Learning of Obafemi Awolowo University, one of Africa's leading Universities. Our Centre, which was established in August 2002, is charged primarily with providing qualitative tertiary education via the Open and Distance Learning mode to two categories of Nigerians.

The first group are the teeming number of Nigerian youths who possess the requisite qualifications for entry to Nigerian Universities but are denied admission owing to inadequate facilities on campus and admission quota. The second group are the working class people who are desirous of pursuing sub-degree and degree (undergraduate and postgraduate) programmes but cannot secure leave from their places of works.

The staff of CDL welcome our e- learning students and we glad that you chose OAU-CDL for your undergraduate programmes. Our website provides you the current information about our various programmes and schedules. While welcoming your suggestions on the ways of improving our services, we wish you a most productive interaction and a successful career with us.


Once again, welcome, and do have a most illuminating and fun time learning.

Prof. MS. Akanni
