What is the Difference Between DPT, DPP and FT Programmes?


Daily Part-Time (DPT) and Daily Part-Time Programme (DPP) are interchangeably used for each other. When you hear DPT, it’s the same as DPP as indicated above. Some simply call it Daily PT or Daily PP.

In short, no difference between the two.

In case you don’t know, DPT or DDP is usually a two-year diploma programme at various polytechnics in Nigeria. You can get a better idea of this course in my post, “Understand PART TIME Degree, HND, ND or NCE Programmes: Short-cut to Gain Admission Without UTME

In order to gain admission for such a programme, you don’t need JAMB UTME result. Some schools may however give preference to those who write UTME whether they passed it or not. Such schools (e.g The Polytechnic Ibadan) may just need evidence of your JAMB registration number. This is because the number will be needed in the future for NYSC mobilization.

These doesn’t mean that candidates who did not write UTME will not be given DPT or DPP admission, but you may be asked to do JAMB regularization later in order to have your own JAMB registration number for NYSC purpose.

Most schools today, resolve to giving Daily Part-Time programme admission to candidates who were unlucky to be given ND full-time space or who failed their post UTMEs e.g The Federal Polytechnic Ede Osun State, Oke Ogun Polytechnic Saki Oyo State, Ibarapa Polytechnic Eruwa Oyo State.

The obvious difference between this programme and full time is the higher fee. In most cases, tuition may be twice or higher of the full time. And candidates may like be scheduled for evening classes.
