UNIVERSITY OF IBADAN POSTGRADUATE ADMISSION CRITERIA
The University of Ibadan does not discriminate on the basis of race, colour, sex, sexual or affectional preference, age, religion, national or ethnic origin, or physically challenged in the admission of students to all rights, privileges, programmes and activities generally accorded or made available to students in the administration of its educational policies and scholarship facilities. Applications are considered on a competitive basis by the Faculty Admissions Committee which evaluates all available information and selects the best qualified applicants from those whose credentials meet the standards for admission.
In every case, decisions are reached through a comparison of the academic merits of all applicants applying in the same field. A bachelor’s degree in a broad programme of general education is normally prerequisite for admission but is not sufficient in itself.
Foreign applicants are expected to have bachelor’s degree with at least a Second Class Upper Division from Universities recognised by the Senate. Since the language of instructions in the University of Ibadan is English, proficiency in reading, writing, speaking and understanding English is required for admission.
Applicants for the degree of Master and Postgraduate Diplomas shall be required to sit for a proficiency test and obtain a mark of at least 40% before their application can be considered. Academic records are also examined to determine whether the applicant has established a firm basis for graduate work in the proposed field of study. Letters of recommendation or Referee’s Reports are given very serious consideration.
When an applicant fails to provide required documents, (transcripts, etc) his or her admission chances suffer in relation to those whose credentials are complete.
Interviews/subject tests may be required for some programmes. The relevant Departments in collaboration with the Postgraduate School’s Admission Office will arrange such interviews/tests
