The Distance Learning Centre (DLC), Ahmadu Bello University is the department in charge of the administration of part-time degree programmes. The management has published the list of current part-time courses offered in ABU Zaria.
Part-time students in Ahmadu Bello University makes up a reasonable number of the total student population at the University. Part-time courses are studied over a longer period of time than their full-time equivalents. However, the programme requires that students spend fewer hours per week in a classroom – courses could involve day release, day plus evening, or evening only study. Information about these options can be found on the relevant faculty or course page.
Ideally, the general entry requirements are the same for full- and part-time students, although part-time application procedures and financial information differ from those for full-time students, that is, they are usually higher in terms of school fees amount.
ABU Zaria part time application procedures vary from one department to another, and sometimes from faculty to faculty. Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria usually advertises for applications from candidates. During this time which gives candidates the opportunity to apply online. However, courses have limited places and to avoid disappointment you should apply early. You will be required to complete an application form online and possibly take a screening test. If selected, you will receive a written offer of a place together with instructions on how to register and join the course.
All candidates are required to enrol and pay the relevant fees before they are permitted to attend classes. The decision that the University makes about your application and your fee status is based on the information provided on your application form. If we find that you have made a false statement or have left out significant information, we reserve the right either to withdraw or amend our offer or to amend your fee status.
Oftentimes candidates seeking admission via part-time confuse the full-time courses for part-time courses. They just assume that any course offered in ABU undergraduate full-time degree programme is equally offered under ABU part-time degree programmes but this is not always the case
Many UTME students that selected ABU in their UTME now go for part-time programmes after failing to gain admission via UTME and the good thing is that the certificate awarded to part-time graduates does not state whether it was part time or full-time degree programme so, in the eyes of any employer, every certificate is given equal opportunity.
ABU part time courses for this semester have been listed below, however, some courses offered in full time are not available in part time programmes mainly because of the time required to cover the scope of work involved. It is one reason part-time programmes in ABU ZARIA and other schools qualified to run part-time degree programmes both in undergraduate and postgraduate level requires at least an extra year more than the duration for full-time degree programmes.
