UNILAG Part Time Courses and Admission Requirements

The University of Lagos Distance Learning Institute (DLI) is the office responsible for the administration of UNILAG part time courses and admission. The DLI has published the list of part time courses offered in UNILAG and the admission requirements for each course.

The University of Lagos Distance Learning Institute, akoka receives the application form every academic session from applicants. Many attribute this to the huge population of Lagos state. Even though this may be true, but not in all entirety. We cannot take out the fact that UNILAG has some of the best and most experienced lecturers in Nigeria hence experience and quality.

We are going to be discussing about UNILAG part time courses and their admission requirements in this post so if you are interested in plying your tertiary education through UNILAG part time programme then this post is for you.

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

Many UTME students that selected UNILAG 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.


UNILAG Part Time Courses and Admission Requirements 1

UNILAG 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, which includes, practical, field trips, consistent attendance and other factors which part time students would most likely not have due to time constraints.

On the other hand, administrative courses like Accounting, Business Administration are the most applied courses under part time studies in UNILAG. There are no part time courses under faculty of sciences. Part time programmes are only available under faculty of social sciences and art.

Do you know that you do not require JAMB in order to gain admission into UNILAG 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 UNILAG 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 UNILAG 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 UNILAG part time degree programme? what are the part time courses offered in UNILAG, what are the requirements to apply for UNILAG part time degree programme?, what is UNILAG part time admission cut off mark? 

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

One common requirement for UNILAG 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.
