Oftentimes candidates seeking admission via part time confuse the full time courses for part time courses. They just assume that any course offered in LASU undergraduate full time degree programme is equally offered under LASU part time degree programmes but this is not always the case

Many UTME students that selected LASU 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.

LASU 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 LASU 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.

Do you know that you do not require JAMB in order to gain admission into LASU part time degree programmes, all that is required is to get your correct O’level results and must be at least 18 years of age to be qualified to purchase LASU part time admission form.
