Mathematics is a course offered in most tertiary institutions in Nigeria, It is a course under the faculty of Mathematics managed by the Department of Mathematics. The importance attached to this post is immeasurable as students during their UTME registration, search for the list of universities offering Mathematics so as to make an informed decision on making a sensible choice based on their catchment area.

The above list is a mixture of private, state and federal universities currently offering Mathematics, this means candidates, Parents or Guardians can make a choice from the above. Most often, it is easier to study the choice of your course when you select a school that is within your Catchment area.

For example, candidates who is from Delta state and selects Mathematics in UNIBEN stands a greater chance of gaining admission to study the course than a candidate who hails from Lagos state or Sokoto state. Many students make the mistake of just selecting randomly without applying the Catchment area principle though this does not apply to Private Universities.
