C O M | @ W A L E M I C A I A H INTRODUCTION The Nigerian university system currently has over 500 unique programmes; however majority of university applicants do not know anything about most of these courses. They are only aware of courses like Medicine & Surgery, Nursing, Pharmacy, Accounting, Mass communication, ‘Engineering’, Computer Science etc. these popular courses are apparently less than one percent of all available courses. Due to this lack of awareness and information on courses, majority of our students and candidates only focus on those courses they know thereby limiting their scope and opportunities for admission in other courses. Right now, I am attending to some candidates who are trying to make up their mind on the exact course to study as well as the university that would give them the best opportunity for admission. This compilation takes a definitive approach to as many courses as possible listed by the National University Commission (NUC). It hopes to also help secondary school students and admission seekers have a basic understanding of courses, open them to other career options so they can make a better and well informed career decisions. NOTE: This book is not a replacement for the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) brochure, it is to serve as a reference material for candidates during career decision making process.
