Polytechnics Offering Science Laboratory Technology (SLT), UTME and SSCE Subjects Required

SLT students at a practical session
Science Laboratory Science (SLT) is one of the most chased courses in Nigeria universities and polytechnics. Especially at the polytechnics, admission seekers majorly look for no other course. The reason may be because, polytechnics are not blessed with lots of medical/science courses or because of the hope that after the SLT ND programme, one might be able to cross to courses like Nursing at university.

Well, in all, candidates can consider this course during JAMB UTME registration or when the change of institutions/courses registration is opened.

To know the polytechnics you can consider for SLT, check through our reputable federal, state and private-owned polytechnics below:
