On this post, I am going to list out all Universities in Nigeria excluding Polytechnics, Monotechnics and College of Education. Interestingly, during my research, I found out Nigeria has the highest numbers of Universities in Africa next to South Africa and Ethiopia. Universities in Nigeria is under the strict supervision of NUC while Admission into Universities in Nigeria is coordinated by JAMB.

To gain admission into any of these lists of universities in Nigeria below, you are required to have O level result and sit for JAMB UTME. The O level result must contain the necessary subjects required to study the course you have chosen. Each course in Nigeria Universities has a different subject requirement.

Nigerian Universities Requirement

If you successfully pass and meet UTME cut-off mark, you will be invited by the university you chose during UTME registration for another examination called POST UTME. The result of your POST UTME will determine if you qualify for provisional admission by the university you have chosen.

If you were given provisional admission, the next step is screening exercise. There is a screening exercise before POST UTME and another screening exercise after you have been offered provisional admission. All the Universities in Nigeria below have this process in place.

The POST UTME Screening exercise is strictly based on the validation of your admission documents (Olevel, JAMB, State of Origin, Age etc). While the screening after provisional admission is all-encompassing. During this screening, you will go through medical check-up, departmental screening, Faculty screening, Library registration, ICT registration etc…
