The Director, Professor Uchenna Udeani welcomes all first-year students to the Distance Learning Institute of the University of Lagos.
We are all happy and excited to receive you as newborn members of this great family of the Distance Learning Institute. We appreciate that though you come from different social, economic and religious backgrounds, it is our sincere hope that you will surely fit into this community and relate well with everybody as you pursue your career.
The Institute has put in place various resources to enable you to complete your studies and thereby accomplish your dream of becoming a graduate. There are also various academic support programmes that are available to enable you to succeed in your studies, so please utilize them.
My wish for you all is to leave this campus with the qualification you came here for because that is what matters most. Do not just desire to pass, but desire to pass excellently. The University that you have joined is amongst the oldest and most prestigious institutions that the country has ever produced. We are committed to quality delivery of services by being prompt, transparent and accountable in all our undertakings, in line with good corporate governance.
Your joining DLI and the University of Lagos comes with many expectations on your part, as well as from parents, colleagues, and lecturers. All of us have one thing in common, and that is a desire to see you succeed in your studies. Failure to do so will lead to disappointments and frustrations.
You will have an opportunity to be introduced to officials in charge of the various sections/departments from whom you may require services. Our academic programmes are of high quality and are geared towards the manpower needs of the country.
Familiarise yourself with the time-table and the venues where you will attend classes and what the assessment policy of DLI says, all of which is available online.
While pursuing your studies, we have channels of communication to facilitate basic communication within the Institute. We communicate via different platforms like the Learning Management System (LMS), Student portal, SMS, WhatsApp, and other social media.
The Institute expects you to pay all your fees to access essential services.
Once more, welcome to the Distance Learning Institute. Enjoy our beautiful campus and all the facilities we have created for you.
Welcome to the University of First Choice and the Nations Pride.
