If you’re setting your sights on a future in science and technology, then Olusegun Agagu University of Science and Technology (OAUSTECH) should be at the top of your list. But how do you secure a spot? The 2023/2024 Post UTME/Direct Entry screening process has begun. Here’s everything you need to know.
OAUSTECH’s Admission Announcement: What You Should Know
Formerly referred to as the Ondo State University of Science and Technology (OSUSTECH), OAUSTECH in Okitipupa, Ondo State, has officially opened its online registration portal for the 2023/2024 screening exercise. The screening will cover all programs offered at the university. Interestingly, provisional admissions are on a first-come, first-served basis, which means the early bird does catch the worm in this case.
Eligibility Criteria: Are You the Right Candidate?
For those who had the foresight to make OAUSTECH their first choice of institution and scored at least 150 in the 2023 UTME, you are in luck. Such candidates are eligible for the Post-UTME Screening Exercise. But what about those who chose the university as a second option or did not select it at all?
- Change of Institution: Such candidates are advised to perform a change of institution on the JAMB website to make OAUSTECH their first choice.
- Direct Entry Candidates: Even if you’re applying through Direct Entry, you should select OAUSTECH as your preferred institution.
- O Level Requirements: Whichever route you’re coming from, you must have secured credit passes in five relevant O Level subjects, including Mathematics and English, in no more than two sittings.
Noteworthy: Four-Year Programme in the School of Science
Prospective candidates should take note: all courses within the School of Science now span four years. Consider this as you map out your academic journey.
Program-specific Admission Requirements
Before proceeding with your application, it’s wise to double-check your eligibility for specific programs on the University’s official website. Here are some highlights:
