Background of the Programmes  

The pre-degree programme is designed to be an intensive coaching curriculum that aims at preparing senior high school graduates (senior secondary) for university education. It is common knowledge that students carry over some deficiencies from secondary schools which inhibit their performances and individual self-development.

Given the prevalence of such situation, the pre-degree programme was initiated to help deal with the setbacks that often accompany such circumstances by providing students with a good head-start that will facilitate superior academic performance in the university.

Applications are hereby invited from suitably qualified candidates for admission into the Pre-Degree Programme for 2019/2020 Session.
