The Office of the Higher Education Commission (Ohec) has threatened to wind up 98 bachelor's and master's programmes run by 10 private universities after a probe found the courses did not meet its quality standards.

Ohec recently conducted a special audit of private universities nationwide after it received petitions claiming many private universities had offered substandard courses by admitting a higher number of students into some programmes than permitted.

The investigation found a total of 98 bachelor's and master's programmes run by 10 private universities failed to meet minimum requirements.
