Have you ever visited The Kaduna State University? you would agree that the school 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.
The Kaduna State University (KASU)( School of Continuing Education) is the body responsible for the administration of part time admission programmes in KASU. 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 KASU undergraduate full time degree programme is equally offered under KASU 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 KASU part time programmes.

Under sciences, courses like computer science, Biology, chemistry, physics as the most registered part time courses in KASU part time admission form. While for faculty of education, Accounting education and business education are the most commonly part time courses applied for in KASU.
