Founded as Nigeria’s beacon of educational excellence, the University of Ibadan (UI) remains a top choice for numerous academic aspirants. As the 2023/2024 academic session approaches, prospective students must be well-informed about the institution’s post-UTME and direct entry screening processes.
Important Dates for Your Diary
Prospective students, take note! The University of Ibadan’s admission portal will become accessible for post-UTME registration from Monday, 23 October 2023 to Friday, 17 November 2023. It’s worth stressing that the deadline is absolute. Extensions, if any, are rare. Hence, candidates failing to submit their bio-data or O/level results within this window will unfortunately be ineligible for the subsequent stages of the screening and admission processes.
Eligibility Criteria for UI Post UTME Screening
Before embarking on the registration process, candidates must meet specific criteria:
- The institution should be their first choice in the recent UTME, and they must have achieved a minimum score of 200.
- Age is also a consideration; candidates should be at least sixteen (16) years old when accepting admission. Those younger will have to defer their admission by a year.
- For aspirants to the College of Medicine and Faculty of Pharmacy, obtaining five credits in one sitting in pertinent O/level subjects is compulsory. Meanwhile, candidates for other programs can present two O/level results but should have a minimum of six credits in related subjects.
- Importantly, UI recognizes only WAEC, NECO, and ICGS as well as specific advanced-level certificates for direct entry. They do not acknowledge IJMB and JUPEP. Prospective students should consult the official list of matriculating subjects and university regulations for comprehensive details.
