Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University is one of the best schools in Nigeria to run both full time and part time degree programmes despite the stress accustomed with the admission process.
Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University(COOU) is the body responsible for the administration of part time admission programmes in COOU. Often times candidates seeking admission via part time confuse the full time courses for part time courses. They just assume that any course offered in COOU undergraduate full time degree programme is equally offered under COOU part time degree programmes but this is not always so.
Many UTME students now go for part time programmes after failing to gain admission via UTME and the good thing is that the B.Sc certificate does not state whether it is part time or full time which is what make it better.
In part time degree programmes most often, physical and life science courses as well as courses like Pharmacy, Medicine and Surgery are exempted mainly because of the scope of work involved which includes, practicals, field trips, consistent attendance and other factors. Though courses like Biology, chemistry, Computer science and even some engineering course are offered under COOU part time programmes.
On the other hand, administrative courses like Accounting, Business Administration are the most applied courses under part time studies in COOU. Under sciences, courses like computer science, Biology, chemistry, physics as the most registered part time courses in COOU part time admission form. While for faculty of education, Accounting education and business education are the most commonly part time courses applied for in COOU.
