Obafemi Awolowo University, Centre for Distance Learning (CDL) is the office responsible for the administration of OAU part time courses and admission. This is to inform the general public that the management of the OAU part time studies has published the list of part time courses offered in OAU and the admission requirements.
The Obafemi Awolowo University, Centre for Distance Learning (CDL) receives the application form every academic session from applicants and here we shall be discussing about OAU part time courses and their admission requirements so if you are interested in applying for this programme, then this post is for you.
It has come to our notice that candidates seeking admission into OAU Ile-ife through their part time programmes confuse the full time courses for part time courses. They just assume that any course offered under OAU undergraduate full time degree programme is equally offered under OAU part time degree programmes but this is not always the case.
UTME students that select OAU in their UTME and not able to gain admission now go for part time programmes as a viable means of gaining admission and the good news is that the certificate awarded to part time graduates is exactly the same with full time degree programme so there is no discrimination.
OAU part time courses for this semester have been listed below, however, some courses offered in full time are not available in part time programmes due to time constraints.
Here, courses under the faculty of education are the most applied courses under part time studies in OAU. There are also part time courses under faculty of social sciences but quite few in number. Part time programmes are only available under faculty of social sciences and education.
Do you know that you do not require JAMB in order to gain admission into OAU 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 OAU part time admission form. In the cause of writing this article, we shall also provide the approved entry admission requirements to study any of the part-time courses offered in OAU as at today.
Most candidates or applicants often complain using the following statements “the course i applied for was not given to me, what should i do? i met all the admission requirements yet i was not offered admission, how do I apply for OAU part time degree programme? what are the part time courses offered in OAU, what are the requirements to apply for OAU part time degree programme? what is OAU part time admission cut off mark?
The above questions have one answer which is, meeting the admission requirements. Any candidate that does meet the OAU part time admission requirement automatically is not eligible for admission and there are no two ways about it.
One common requirement for OAU part-time courses is that they all require O’level results with at least five (5) credit passes which must include English language and mathematics and any other three (3) O’Level subjects as it relates to their course of study. See below for full requirements according to OAU School of Continuing Education.
