UMYU Part Time Courses, Duration and Entry Requirements [year] 1

Most times candidates seeking admission into UMYU via part time confuse the UMYU time courses for part time courses. They just assume that any course offered in UMYU undergraduate UMYU time degree programme is equally offered under UMYU part time degree programmes but this is not always the scenario.

UTME students that selected UMYU in their UTME and could not gain admission now go for part time programmes and the good news is that the certificate awarded to part time graduates is exactly the same with UMYU time degree programme so there is no discrimination.

UMYU part time courses for this semester have been listed below, however, some courses offered in UMYU 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 UMYU. 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 UMYU 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 UMYU 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 UMYU 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 UMYU part time degree programme? what are the part time courses offered in UMYU, what are the requirements to apply for UMYU part time degree programme?, what is UMYU part time admission cut off mark? 

The above questions have one answer which is, meeting the admission requirements. Any candidate that does meet the UMYU part time admission requirement automatically is not eligible for admission and there are no two ways about it.
