Architecture: Direct Entry Admission Requirements

Seeking admission into Architectural Technology as a DE applicant requires you understanding what JAMB requires of you before you can process admission into the 200 level of Architecture in these universities. 


You should as well be mindful of specific requirements by each of the universities offering Architecture. Why JAMB requirements are a must to have, a few universities may want more or less.


This post details what JAMB and each of the universities require for Direct Entry (DE) admissions into Architectural Technology. It's important to know that these details are exactly what is in the official JAMB brochure. The post only helps you safe time and avoid the stress.

JAMB General Direct Entry Requirements for Architectural Technology

JAMB requires applicants to have at least Two (2) 'A' Level passes chosen from Mathematics or Physics and Chemistry, Geography or Fine Arts or ND/HND upper credits in a relevant field.


A'level in this case, include IJMB, JUPEB, NABTEB A'level, etc
