So you want to study Microbiology…. This means you’re a science student but do have have what it takes? I mean it is not enough to know the list of Nigerian Universities offering Microbiology. You need to know the WAEC subject that you need to study Microbiology as well as the JAMB subjects. This the first steps toward studying Microbiology in Nigeria universities. You will need other documents too for pre screening and Matriculation screening.

Your JAMB score, Post UTME score and WAEC Grade will be calculated and the aggregate score is what determine if you qualify to study Microbiology. Moreover, those who got their O level result in one sitting have a better chance of getting admission to study Microbiology than those using two sitting.

Do you know that microbiology is one of the most popular courses in Nigeria? So popular that almost all universities in Nigeria offer the course and as such, a very competitive in the university. Competitiveness means many students want to gain admission to study this course.

Once a course is competitive, it simply means certain measures are put in place to make sure they limit the number of students they can admit. Such limitation includes high jamb cut off mark, a limited number of admissible students, strict subject combinations etc.

But what is so special about this course… Let me give you a little info about microbiology before you go through the list of universities offering Microbiology.

Microbiologists are needed to do the research required for the future battle against infectious diseases worldwide, understanding the environmental importance of microbes and exploiting them for food production, biotechnological and industrial applications.

The main focus of this course is the pathogenic potential of the organisms that cause disease in man. You will also cover aspects of the Microbiology, physiology and genetics of microorganisms. You will spend your first year learning fundamental concepts before specialising in microbiology topics in your second and final year.

In recent times, it’s not about passing the subject combinations, you must have a good grade like A and B in those subjects if you want to stand a chance to get admission without struggling.
