Nigerian Universities Offering Pubic Health and Requirements for UTME/DE


As you're preparing to write UTME to seek admission into various universities offering public health, you may want to check for their UTME and DE requirements.


A few students are considering Public Health as an alternative to Nursing. And since polytechnics and colleges of education are not offering either course, candidates' attention solely paid to universities offering this course.


In this post, you will see the list of Nigerian universities, federal, state, or private that are offering Public Health.


You'll also be guided about the SSCE/O'level subjects required of you, together with the right four subjects you must sit for during the UTME.


In the same vein, the Direct Entry applicants will be shown the grades and courses required from their former schools/qualifications if they will be considered for 200 level admissions into Public Health.
