Admission Requirements For Psychology in Nigerian Universities

When you decide to choose Psychology in UTME/DE registration, you have one or two of these universities for consideration. However, the next question will be what are the requirements for its admission.

What is the admission requirement for Psychology and Literary Studies? 

These requirements should include

  1. the JAMB UTME subject combination
  2. the SSCE or O'level subjects
  3. the Direct entry qualification and grades

In this post, I will be breaking these down. You will see the Direct entry requirement, the UTME requirement, and the O'level requirement for Psychology.

Official JAMB Requirement For Psychology

In the JAMB brochure, the board has listed the following as its official requirements for English.

  1. Direct Entry: Two (2) A'level passes including Government or History.
  2. SSCE Subjects: Five (5) SSC credit passes in Government or History, English Language, and three (3) other subjects. A pass in Mathematics is required.
  3. UTME Subjects: English, Any three (3) subjects from Arts or Social Science

With the stated requirements, you should be fine with almost all the universities offering Psychology except for a few that will ask for "Biology" in SSCE e.g. AAUA, FUOYE. However, some universities may be friendly or tense in the demand.

This is why an in-depth look into the specific requirements of each university will be more helpful.

Universities' Specific Admission Requirements for Psychology

I've studied all the universities offering English - Federal, State, and Private.

Here is my finding!

All of them comply with the exact requirements stated officially by JAMB. Hence with the above-stated qualification, you're good to go. Let's check a few examples.

University Of Ilorin, Ilorin, Kwara State requirements for Psychology is as follows.

Plateau State University, Bokkos, Plateau State accepts the same requirements.

This is a difference in SSCE requirements (Biology) for Osun State University, Osogbo, Osun State.

However, the direct-entry applicants may need to out further if their proposed university accepts IJMB, JUPEB, A'level Cambridge, NCE, ND, HND, or BSC depending on their own qualification being used to chase the 200/300 level admission.
