RSUST Part-time Courses and Entry Requirements

The Centre for Continuing Education (CCE), Rivers state university of science and technology is the department in charge of the administration of part time degree programmes. The management has published the list of current part time courses offered in RSUST.

Part-time students in Rivers state university of Science and Technology makes up almost a third of the total student population at the University. Part-time courses are studied over a longer period of time than their full-time equivalents. However, the programme requires that students spend fewer hours per week in a classroom – courses could involve day release, day plus evening, or evening only study. Information about these options can be found from the relevant faculty or course page.

Ideally, the general entry requirements are the same for full- and part-time students, although part-time application procedures and financial information differ from those for full-time students, that is, they are usually higher in terms of school fees amount.

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

Many UTME students that selected RSUST 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.

RSUST 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 RSUST 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.
