Does University of Ibadan (UI) Run Pre-degree/Remedial?

UI logo
For the past few years, I've been getting this question. Is the University of Ibadan (UI), running a pre-degree or remedial programme?

A few students, in the past, had chatted with me to ask "is UI predegree form out? and I was quick to answer them as directly as I could.

However, very recently, some scammers are taking advantage of innocent admission seekers. Hence, I saw the need to come up in full writing to answer whether the university is one of the universities running pre-degree or remedial programmes in Nigeria.

In this post, I will answer the questions, in writing, whether you can do a pre-degree at UI and shed more light on certain confusion.

The University of Ibadan Doesn't Run Pre-degree Programme

As hurting as this may sound to UI lovers, the university doesn't run pre-degree courses.

In case you don't know, a pre-degree programme is a 1-year-and-before-100 level programme that some universities do run in order to prepare their students for the regular 4-, 5- or 6-year university programme.

With this course, candidates will be groomed within their proposed universities' campuses (e.g. FUTA, LAUTECH) or dedicated study centres (e.g. UNILORIN, OAU). After this, they will obtain JAMB UTME and together with their pre-degree programme will be offered admission to the 100-level.

Unfortunately, the University of Ibadan (UI), as of now, is running the pre-degree or remedial programme leading to 100-level admissions in the end. I will be sure to update this post if they start such a programme sooner or later.

Scammers are Posting Online that UI is Selling Pre-degree Admission Forms

I've personally seen some bloggers who were posting, online, that the University of Ibadan was running a pre-degree course as such selling form to the prospective candidates. That is a scam!

Be careful with what you will read and believe online. The University of Ibadan is not selling any pre-degree through any website, admission office(r), or agent.

Just recently, an innocent girl, who fell victim to this scam, chatted with me to ask when the entrance exam for the university's pre-degeee programme will hold.

As soon as I heard this, I knew the poor girl had been scammed.

I asked where she obtained the form, and she told me he called their admission office whose number was copied from a blog or website and sent the sum of #15,000 to him.

He promised to complete the registration for the girl and that she would receive a message about when the entrance exam will hold.

Be warned, once again, UI doesn't have any website through which it's selling the pre-degree form or a person be it a lecturer or admission officer or agent selling such forms.

My Personal Research Revealed One of Such Scammers/Bloggers

I asked the poor lady to send me the number of the claimed admission officer. Do you know my finding?

The same number was proclaiming himself to be the admission officer of many schools. Meaning, the man was exploiting very many students claiming to be admission officers of these schools.

Common typing of this number to Google, here was the result.

By implication, hundreds of students are falling victim to this bold faster. Kindly be warned! Check also the blog's name, and links in the picture above. Run!

University of Ibadan Sells Other Forms Than the Pre-degree

Some of your friends or families may be mixing things up if they argue UI is selling PDS or PD forms.

They may be mistaken for the university's Post UTME/DE, Distance learning, A'level Advance level and a few other forms for the remedial.

Let me explain.

UI Post UTME/DE forms are meant for candidates who had chosen the university during the JAMB registration or had later changed to the university. Such students will buy its form after they might have met up with the cut-off mark announced by the university. 

After this, they write their entrance exam/post-UTME (except for DE applicants) and await admissions eventually to 100 and 200 levels for the UTME and DE applicants respectively.

UI A'level programme is a 9-month advanced course, for SSCE holders, organized by the university's international school. The aim is to prepare their candidates for the Cambridge exams. After completing this course and passing it, candidates can use their results to gain 200-level admission for any course of interest into the university or any other university accepting Cambridge A'level be it at home or abroad.

UI Distance Learning Programme (DLC) is open to both SSCE holders (100-level admission) and BSC, HND, ND or NCE holders (200-level admission). Here is a programme for students to study at their own paces, including the working class, and earn degrees without being on campus or in lecture rooms like conventional students attending the non-DLC programmes.

For this programme which is more or less a part-time course, you're to obtain the admission form, participate in the entrance exam and screening. If offered admission, you can study on your own and present at the study centre only for tests and exams. At the end of the course, 4 or 5 years, depending on the duration of your course, you're awarded BSC which is acceptable anywhere.
