Covenant University is a product of the Liberation Commission that God gave to Bishop Oyedepo in a May 1981 vision-encounter.
The drive to embark on the process of founding CU came about October of 1999, one month after the dedication of Faith Tabernacle, the largest church auditorium in the world, built in one year with only local resources.
One of the biggest challenges facing the Nigerian educational system today is the dearth of qualified academics with the relevant postgraduate qualification and practitioner base. Nigerian Universities.

Starting from the bedrock of a Staff Development platform, the University, through the School of Postgraduate Studies, is committed to developing and implementing postgraduate programmes which will provide the foundation for achieving the University’s goal of being a leading Research University in its desire to align itself with Nigeria’s Vision.

The courses taught were a lot and very broad. It was hard.
The standard of education is good. I like the fast paced education. The school is also big on spirituality, being a Christian school. The school should work on improving it's internet service. Altogether, my experience at the school was worthwhile.
I joined my university in the year 2018. So far it has been a somewhat great experience. In the theory aspect, they have that down but they are lacking in the practical aspect. They also need to partner more with international organizations and universities.
