Firstly, let me clearly tell you that UNILORIN Remedial programme is another term for Predegree programme or Foundation Studies. The term of usage depends solely on the school but the meaning is still the same. DELSU call this programme Predegree while some other schools call it Remedial or Foundation Studies. For the sake of this post, I will stick to *Remedial*

So does UNILORIN do Predegree programme/Remedial? the answer is Yes!!!. Unilorin Remedial Programme serves as a platform to equip prospective students for university admission.

The Unilorin remedial is aimed at preparing students for admission into the courses of their choice. Admission into a chosen course of study at Unilorin through the remedial/Pre-degree is determined by the candidate’s good performance at the remedial program, the possession of an acceptable current JAMB score and possession of the required 5 O’ Level credits in subjects relevant to the chosen of course.

Admission to study fully in Unilorin also requires that the student have the required cut off mark in JAMB. You will be accepted into 100 level automatically in Unilorin after a successful remedial programme.
