  • 1. Most Sought-After Courses in Nigerian Universities
  • 2. Application for the 2014/2015 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) conducted by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) ended in March 2014, over 1.6 million candidates selected their preferred choice of course, with the expectation that they have their admission hope met. In past UTME, candidates can select two (2) courses (first and second choice) from each Institution, however for this UTME2014/2015 candidates are only able to select a course from each University, Polytechnics / Monotechnics, Colleges of Education, Innovative Enterprise Institutions. In all, a candidate selects 4 courses and can only be admitted in one.
  • 3. This analysis is carried out to establish:  The most sought-after course in each tertiary institution category  Likely change in choice of career among candidates from 2011/2012 till date  Institutions with most sought-after courses; Federal, State and Private universities  Some career guidance for prospective Candidates on their choice of careers Review will cover from UTME for 2011/2012 – 2014/2015 academic sessions

  • 5. University According to the 2014/15 Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, there are over 600 courses in Nigerian Universities. While some enjoy great patronage by students, majority are embraced but for the failure of being considered for admission for the preferred choice.
  • 6. According to the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, Below are the respective faculties for which Candidates can seek admission into: Faculty (University) School (Poly) School (College of Education) Administration, Agriculture, Arts & Humanities, Education, Engineering/Tech/Env., Law/Legal Studies, Med/Pharm/Health, Sciences, Social Sciences Engineering/Technology, Sciences, Social Sciences Arts & Humanities, Sciences

Based on a previous analysis; admission rate for Medicine & Surgery is at less than 5% (less than 7,123 of 142,474). http://www.slideshare.net/statisense /admission-rate-of-medical-students
  • 9. Most Sought-After Course – Medicine & Surgery A total of 285,076 candidates applied for courses in Faculty of Medicine; Medicine & Surgery received 142,474 applications, this is 50% of total applicants in this Faculty. Nursing, Pharmacy, Medical Laboratory Science, and Radiography received 22.7%, 12.2%, 8.5% and 1.3% of total applicants respectively. Medicine & Surgery, Nursing, Pharmacy, Medical Laboratory Science, Radiography, Dentistry & Dental Surgery, Veterinary Medicine, Physiology, Anatomy, Public Health Technology, Medical Rehabilitation, Physiotherapy, Optometry, Medical Biochemistry, Human Nutrition & Dietetics, Human Anatomy, Biochemistry, Biomedical Technology, Pharmacology & Therapeutics, Pharmacology, Medical Radiography & Radiological Science, Nutrition & Consumers Services, Veterinary Science. This accounted for one of the reasons why there is low (less than 5%) admission rate for Medicine & Surgery. Even though it is the most preferred choice among Science students, there are just 46 Universities (Federal -21, State -18, Private -7) where Medicine & Surgery are listed. Ironically, the Health Index of Nigeria is at extreme low (Global Competitive Index ranks Nigeria Health and Primary Education 146 of 148 Countries) and Life Expectancy at about 47years. 23 Courses

  • 15. Trend of Most Sought-After Courses & DestinationUTME Applications 2011/12 – 2014/15  UNILORIN is the preferred destination for Accounting, Business Administration, and Computer Science  FUTO is preferred for Mechanical, Electrical, and Civil Engineering  UNN is preferred for Nursing Science  UNIBEN is preferred for Law  UNIZIK is preferred for Medical Laboratory Science  BENSU is preferred for Sociology Other courses like Medicine and Surgery, Economics, Pharmacy, Political Science, Biochemistry, Banking & Finance, etc. could not be specifically traced to individual institutions; for instance, a course like Medicine & Surgery had no singular preferred destination as top spot were shared among ABU, UNN, UNIBEN, and UNILORIN. However, a wild guess would be to consider affiliate courses such as Pharmacy, Nursing, Microbiology & Biochemistry; whichever of the Institutions have them as preferred can be inferred to be a destination choice.
