Admission Requirements For Linguistics in Nigerian Universities

If you choose to consider Linguistics in JAMB UTME/DE or while changing institutions/courses, you'll want to know what the admission requirements are.


With this, you want answers to three questions depending on your own concerns. As a UTME candidate, you want to know:


  1. The JAMB subject combination for Linguistics and Language and 
  2. SSCE (O'level) subject requirement for it.


As Direct Entry (DE) applicant, you want to know, aside from the O'level requirements, which concern you too, what the A'level, NCE, ND, HND, or BSC required for Linguistics.


In this post, using the official JAMB brochure, I'll be giving you the official admission requirements for ALL universities that are offering Linguistics.

First, The General JAMB Requirement for Linguistics

According to the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), candidates seeking admission into Linguistics must have the following.


  1. Direct Entry (DE) Applicants: Two (2) A'level passes or NCE to include any Language, preferably an African Language.
  2. SSCE/DE Applicants: Five (5) SSC credit passes including English Language.
  3. JAMB Subject Combination: English, Any Language and two (2) other subjects.

With the stated conditions above, if a student should follow, the university proposed should admit him or her provided you meet other admission conditions.

Second, The Specific Requirement By A Few Universities Offering Linguistics

To prove this further and show you if any difference in what each university may ask for, let's sample three of the universities - federal, state, and private. The sample universities DE, SSCE, and JAMB subjects are numbered 1, 2, and 3 respectively.

University Of Maiduguri, Borno State accepts as follows.

  1. Two (2) ‘A’ Level passes or NCE to include any Language, preferably an African Language.
  2. Five (5) SSC credit passes including English Language.
  3. Any Language and two (2) other subjects.

Ebonyi State University, Abakaliki, Ebonyi State accepts as follows.

  1. Two (2) ‘A’ Level passes or NCE to include any Language, preferably an African Language.
  2. Five (5) SSC credit passes including English Language.
  3. Any Language and two (2) other subjects.

  1. Two (2) ‘A’ Level passes or NCE to include any Language, preferably an African Language.
  2. Five (5) SSC credit passes including English Language.
  3. Any Language and two (2) other subjects.

Conclusion

While seeking admission into any university offering Biology in Nigeria, like any other course, the JAMB official requirement should be your priority because most if not the universities will comply with that.

As you must have seen in the post and with the sampled universities, the primary requirements are still in accordance with that of JAMB.
