Have you ever visited Nnamdi Azikiwe University? you would agree that the school is one of the best schools in Nigeria to run both full time and part time degree programmes despite the stress accustomed with the admission process.
Nnamdi Azikiwe University (UNIZIK) Continuing Education Programme (CEP) is the body responsible for the administration of part time admission programmes in UNIZIK. Often times candidates seeking admission via part time confuse the full time courses for part time courses. They just assume that any course offered in UNIZIK undergraduate full time degree programme is equally offered under UNIZIK part time degree programmes but this is not always so.
Many UTME students now go for part time programmes after failing to gain admission via UTME and the good thing is that the B.Sc certificate does not state whether it is part time or full time which is what make it better.
In part time degree programmes most often, physical and life science courses as well as courses like Pharmacy, Medicine and Surgery are exempted mainly because of the scope of work involved which includes, practicals, field trips, consistent attendance and other factors. Though courses like Biology, chemistry, Computer science and even some engineering course are offered under UNIZIK part time programmes.
On the other hand, administrative courses like Accounting, Business Administration are the most applied courses under part time studies in UNIZIK. Under sciences, courses like computer science, Biology, chemistry, physics as the most registered part time courses in UNIZIK part time admission form. While for faculty of education, Accounting education and business education are the most commonly part time courses applied for in UNIZIK.
Please not that you do not require JAMB in order to gain admission into UNIZIK 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 UNIZIK 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 UNIZIK as at today.
Some 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 UNIZIK part time degree programme? what are the part time courses offered in UNIZIK, what are the requirements to apply for UNIZIK part time degree programme?, what is UNIZIK part time admission cut off mark?
