Universities Offering Botany and Admission Requirements


Botany is a natural science concerned with the study of plants. The main branches of botany (also referred to as "plant science") are commonly divided into three groups: core topics, concerned with the study of the fundamental natural phenomena and processes of plant life, the classification and description of plant diversity; applied topics which study the ways in which plants may be used for economic benefit in horticulture, agriculture and forestry; and organismic topics which focus on plant groups such as algae, mosses or flowering plants.

While considering choosing Botany during the UTME/DE registration or the change of course exercise, admission seekers need to understand what it entails to be offered the course. UTME and Direct Entry applicants should know among other things:
