Universities That Accept HND/Bsc into 300 Level Direct Entry (DE)


I remember citing UNILORIN as one of the universities accepting HND holders into 300 level of a few courses through direct entry. I will repeat the same here and add a few other universities I’d got enough information about. The universities to cover in this post will admit you with HND into 300 level. Some on the condition that you must have upper credit and some on lower credit term.
