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

Aside checking for universities or polytechnics offering Microbiology as a course, you need to be sure of the correct O’Level and JAMB subject combination for studying Microbiology because in the past, candidates who have ignored this move were either forced to change their school or lost out on the admission for that academic session.

a) Must have obtained a minimum of five (5) ‘O’ level credits in the following subjects; Maths, Biology, Physics, Chemistry and three or four other subjects in not more than 2 sittings.

The above list is a mixture of private, state and federal universities currently offering Microbiology, 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 Microbiology 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.

In summary, if you must select a state or Federal university, choose your state or school that falls within your catchment area for you to stand a huge chance of studying Microbiology or any course of your choice.
