Speaking during a press conference at the school’s permanent site in Umunya, Oyi LGA of the state, the proprietor of the university, Prof. Johnbosco Akam, said that the institution started with only two faculties but presently boasts five faculties and 36 courses approved by the National Universities Commission (NUC).

He pointed out that the institution was named after late Rev Fr. Iwene Tansi in order to immortalise him and use him as a pointer to imbibe morals in the students trained in the school.

Akam, who spoke as Tansian moved into its permanent site, said that although the university has Catholic affiliation, its doors are open to students from all religious backgrounds to obtain quality education.

“Tansian has a heart for everyone, be you Anglican, Catholic, Muslim, Seventh Adventist, etc. Admission here is open to all, provided you abide by the rules and regulations of the school,” Akam said.

He stated that the criteria for admission into the institution is in accordance with the guidelines set by JAMB, which is 180 score and above with five credits. The university, according to Akam, has a rigorous academic regime through assignments, handouts, practicals and text books.

He stressed that the school boasts 24-hour power supply and a standard ICT centre.

Akam said that the Tansian is to be the Harvard and Oxford University of Africa. The institution, he said, has zero tolerance for crime, cultism, sexual harassment and any sort of exam malpractice, be it sorting or sleeping with the lecturers to get marks.

The Tansian University Founder/Chancellor Akam disclosed that admission for the 2014/2015 academic session will commence next month (September). He called on school leavers who scored 180 and above at the last JAMB exam but could not get admission in their school of choice to embrace the opportunity given by Tansian University to secure a good quality education by purchasing the school’s form at Fidelity Bank at the cost of N10,000.
