Sandwich Degree Admission

By SANDWICH, I mean school programmes designed to accommodate usually candidates who are working class but aim to further their education. These applicants are usually graduates from a course but wish to continue learning and acquire further degree.

NOTE: Sandwich is usually meant for teachers. These teachers are probably already teaching in schools and when they have holidays, they dedicate that period to their studies at the sandwich centre.

Why Should You Consider Sandwich Degree 

You want to know if the sandwich courses are right for you. Good!

I’d earlier said that the programme is perfect for teachers. In fact, some schools only run sandwich programmes for education courses. You know when you study education in school and earn your degree in education; you end up being a teacher right?

If you don’t know that, that is it!

Of course, you can have sandwich programmes for other disciplines than education. But sandwich education is more popular in this part of the world.

To know if your proposed school is running other courses you’re interested in, visit the adverts for their programmes.

A related issue is, you may need to have possessed HND, ND or NCE before you can apply for sandwich course in some universities. Others however, accept applicants with only SSCE as well.

In that case, those with higher qualifications like HND, ND or NCE may run their courses for years less than applicants with SSCE only.

Note that, sandwich programmes can be run for years between 3 to 5. It all depends on the earlier qualifications of the applicants or the school's policies.

Check the school’s adverts for the programmes for further details about this.

How is the Programme Conducted

Usually, schools conduct the course on part-time basis. Candidates are accommodated for continuing studies at certain period of the years.

For example, those institutions that run sandwich only for education courses run the course during school breaks (long vacations). Hence, students are welcome to campus or their study centres by first term, second term and third term breaks.

Does Sandwich programme require JAMB UTME?

No.

In fact, sandwich is one of the ways to gain admission without JAMB. You don’t need UTME result to apply and gain admission.

Candidates are considered for admission based on their O’level performance and A’level grades (in the case of HND, ND or NCE graduates).
